Homeschool Freebies–Keep Your Kids Busy With Good, Clean Summer Fun!

Some great freebies this week from Homeschoolfreebieoftheday! On Monday and Tuesday we have:

The American Boy’s Handy Book: PART ONE (PDF ebook)

Part One of this wonderful, classic collection of projects from yesteryear for adventurous boys (and girls) to make and do all year long. Just a few are: building kites, unique ways to fish, building an aquarium, knots, water telescopes, boat building, wooden toys, hunting, even taxidermy! Fully illustrated.

This seems along the same lines as one of my son’s favorites from the library, “The Dangerous Book for Boys.”  Looking forward to checking this out, with summer approaching quickly!

And on Wednesday and Thursday…

The American GIRL’S Handy Book: PART ONE (PDF ebook)

In this great companion book to the Boys book, subtitled How to Amuse Yourself & Others”, we again have a huge collection of a bit more genteel projects, activities and fun stuff for girls (and boys) to make and enjoy. Includes: finding & preserving wildflowers, corn husk & flower dollmaking, and much more! Fully illustrated, A true classic glimpse of childhood in days gone by.

Thursday’s installment includes

nature art projects, parties for all seasons, games, plaster casting, home gymnastics, needlework, candymaking, holiday amusements, and lots more fun stuff from yesteryear.

Not quite “The Daring Book for Girls,” (which my 13 yo has enjoyed) but still sounds like fun!
