Summary
For good old-fashioned fun, nothing beats this 1887 gem! Truly a "handy" book, it shows girls how to make their own amusements, with illustrated explanations that range from hobbies such as needlework and painting to suggestions for planning picnics and playing games. Hundreds of simple and timeless ideas and activities include creating handmade dolls, preserving wildflowers, weaving a rope hammock, building bookshelves, and making gifts for friends and family. The projects, which require only common household items, encourage young imaginations and foster creativity. In addition to traditional arts and crafts, the well-rounded offerings include hiking and other outdoor adventures.Authors Lina and Adelia B. Beard wrote and illustrated many children's books and were instrumental in founding the Campfire Girls. This volume is a companion to The American Boy's Handy Book, written by the Beards' brother, Daniel. Its sensible, self-assured tone outlines a lively portrait of girlhood that's full of possibilities. Parents, grandparents, teachers, and camp counselors will find it a treasury of inspiration for wholesome, fun-filled activities
