Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 and materials, including a guide to joints, and then launches into simple designs for building just about anything a kid or parent might dream up. There 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 piñatas, clay castles, toy bins, trains, and even a scooter and spaceship.

David Stiles, the king of do-it-yourself projects, is like an ultra-handy neighbor to help you get the job done quickly and easily.

 

Synopsis:

This revised paperback contains exact plans for building dozens of real projects with young people, such as a clay castle, a scooter, a treehouse, a swing, and a raft just like Huck Finn' s. Newly-added projects include a Mobius strip and a jungle railing for your treehouse. Hours of weekend fun - half the fun is in the perusing of all the possibilities. David Stiles is an industrial designer who has appeared on many television programs, and whose playground designs have won awards from the New York City planning commission. He lives with his family in New York City and on Long Island.
