Fun Projects for You and the Kids
Synopses & Reviews
The next time your child asks you to build her a lemonade stand or dollhouse, don't blink and swallow. Turn to Fun Projects for You and the Kids instead. David Stiles starts with a straightforward discussion of tools, materials, and a guide to joints, and then launches into simple designs for building just about anything a kid or parent might dream up. Included are ideas for clubhouses and a tepee made of branches and canvas, for toy cannons and Huck Finn-style rafts, and for swings and rowboats. There are also plans for indoor projects like pinatas, clay castles, toy bins, trains, and even a scooter and spaceship.
David Stiles, the king of projects, is like the ultra-handy neighbor every parent needs.
