Description

Measure, hammer, and screw to make something new! For kids 8+ who love to create, STANLEY® Jr's Woodworking is Awesome gets them off of 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 teach kids the ground rules for the projects in the book. (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, and larger, 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, highlighting everything from circle science to catapulting energy. Kids are encouraged to develop a “maker” mentality, fostering creative problem-solving and open-ended exploration. Build and explore in the wood shop!
