Description


From the author of The American Boy's Handy Book comes yet another classic guide to wholesome, imaginative fun. Daniel C. Beard, a co-founder of the Boy Scouts of America, shows children how to make their own amusements. Dozens of indoor and outdoor activities spark young imaginations and introduce kids to the pleasure and satisfaction of creating their own playthings.
Simple instructions and hundreds of easy-to-follow diagrams include directions for building a backyard clubhouse, setting up a workshop, and playing picnic games. Boys and girls can learn how to construct an aviary, a frontier cabin, and a houseboat. They'll discover the delights of making toys with just paper and scissors, putting on an indoor Wild West show, assembling a homemade circus, and other timeless diversions. Most of these projects require only inexpensive supplies and minimal or no adult supervision, and all abound in nostalgic charm.
