The Girl Mechanic Goes Outdoors: 160 Exciting Projects to Make and Do Cover

 

Staff Pick

Children — girls and boys — should spend more time outdoors, with their faces away from TV and computer screens. (This goes for grownups, too.) With summer fast approaching, this handy little book is a perfect resource for when your child is bored and restless. Plant seeds, make a tent, make a garden rake from an old umbrella, or build a playhouse that you can store in your closet. The Girl Mechanic Goes Outdoors is more technical than you might think, so have a ruler, some basic tools, and some paper handy while tackling some of the more involved projects. Inspiring and fun!

Publisher Comments:

Girl Power…POPULAR MECHANICS style!

 

Nostalgic pleasure for todays girls! From very practical to just-for-fun, The Girl Mechanic Goes Outdoors offers a playful selection of the magazines most creative projects and tips. Like previous books in the series, some projects can be done by the child alone, while, others require a little help from Mom or Dad.  And every one of them offers a charming look at old-fashioned ingenuity and resourcefulness.

Among the ideas that the whole family will enjoy are backyard amusements like the Fairyland Playhouse and Porch Swing Chair; clever gardening gadgets to cultivate a childs green thumb; campfire crafts such as a nut bowl and flower basket made from logs; and sporty projects for the active girl.
