The Girl Mechanic Goes Outdoors: 160 Exciting Projects to Make and Doby Sarah Scheffel and Editors of Popular Mechanics
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!
