Description

Boys like making stuff. Actually, boys love making stuff, and not just model boats, paper aeroplanes, bows and arrows and catapults  â?? although they love that too. Boys like knitting; scarves, hats, spiders and monsters. Boys like sewing â?? especially if they can use the sewing machine. They like cutting and sticking and gluing and sawing and hammering.  However, sometimes people â?? both boys and their parents â?? need to be reassured that itâ??s okay for boys to make things. BoyCraft does exactly that. 

BoyCraft is packed with over 50 projects to make for and with boys (and girls). It is illustrated with a mix of photographs and graphic-style illustrations.

Praise For Boycraft: Loads of Things to Make For and With Boys (and Girls)

"Our six-year-old tester was 'inspired and found several things he wanted to make, including jumper monkeys!" according to his delighted mother.

"We think this stimulating collection of projects to make for and with boys (and girls) who want to make something a little bit different is a brilliant idea."

â??this animated book details a range of projects designed to appeal to boys (and tomboys) before they get the idea that craft is just for girlsâ?

"brilliantly inspiring projects for boys (and tomboys) .... the authors have a clutch of boys between them so they know from first-hand experience just what appeals.  And it shows."

"a wonderful, lavishly-illustrated book explaining how to make all manner of things.  The ideas are actually do-able ... And the craft will be enjoyed every bit as much by girls."

"lots of ideas, from sticking and glueing to hammering and knitting from the women behind Buttonbag."
