Girl Power... POPULAR MECHANICS' style!


Nostalgic pleasure for today's girls! From very practical to just-for-fun, The Girl Mechanic Goes Outdoors offers a playful selection of the magazine's most creative projects and tips. Like previous books in the series, some projects can be done by the child alone, while, others require a little help from Mom or Dad.  And every one of them offers a charming look at old-fashioned ingenuity and resourcefulness.

Among the ideas that the whole family will enjoy are backyard amusements like the Fairyland Playhouse and Porch Swing Chair; clever gardening gadgets to cultivate a child's green thumb; campfire crafts such as a nut bowl and flower basket made from logs; and sporty projects for the active girl.
