Description

Measure, hammer, and screw to make something new! For kids 8+ who love to create, STANLEY® Jr. Woodworking is Awesome gets them off the screen and into the wood shop with a dozen fun projects.

Jump right in with an introduction to building with wood! A complete basics section on tools and skills teaches kids the ground rules. (They'll also learn when parents will need to lend a helping hand in the wood shop.) The rest of the book is all about the projects, including easy builds and more challenging ideas. Chapters and projects include:
  • Fun and hobby-related projects like a birdhouse, toss across game, and catapult!
  • Handy projects like a tool carrier and workbench.
  • Gifts, including a picture frame and jewelry box.
With clearly written steps and helpful photographs the aim is for kids to lead. STEAM/STEMlearning opportunities are part of the fun as well! Supplemental facts and explorations accompany the projects throughout the book. Kids are encouraged to develop a maker mentality, fostering creative problem-solving and open-ended exploration. Build and explore in the wood shop!
