Home-made toys stimulate children's imagination, and are often more educational and fulfilling than shop-bought versions. This step-by-step guide shows you how to make simple wooden games and toys with the help of little hands, as well as bigger projects like a garden swing or sandpit.

The book contains thirty fun, child-friendly woodworking projects, for absolute beginners as well as those who want more of a challenge. You don't need to be an experienced carpenter to tackle any of them, and nor do you need expensive tools or materials.

Try your hand at a brand new project and help your child discover the joy of saying 'I made this myself!'


'Helpful advice is given on materials, tools and techniques... This is an encouraging book for anyone who would like some guidance and reassurance with this rewarding craft.'
-- Home Education Advisory Service Bulletin

'Enjoyable woodworking projects for all abilities.'
