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!'
