Overview

The next time your child asks you to build her a lemonade stand or doll house, don't blink and swallow, turn to FUN PROJECTS FOR YOU AND THE KIDS, instead.

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, for swings and rowboats.

Also included are plans for indoor projects like piñatas, clay castles, toy bins, trains, and even a scooter and space ship.

David Stiles, the king of projects, is like the ultra-handy neighbor every parent needs.
