Carving for Kids: An Introduction to Woodcarving (Paperback)
Spark your child's creativity with the beautiful art of woodcarving
Woodcarving is the perfect art for nurturing a child's creative spirit. Requiring nothing more than a few simple tools and a little inspiration, woodcarving allows children to express their imagination while fostering manual dexterity and a sense of accomplishment. Carving for Kids is a child-centered introduction to woodcarving with 11 skill-building projects for children ages 4 to 17.
Carving for Kids emphasizes safe handling of cutting and carving tools, and all project should be done with adult supervision, but children will be able to complete these age-appropriate designs all by themselves. Ranked by age level, the 11 projects in Carving for Kids range from carving a name stamp (for the youngest woodworkers) to carving a face (for teenage craftspeople). Easy, step-by-step instructions guide children to the joy of coaxing shapes and figures from solid blocks of wood. Carving for Kids also provides information on computer-aided pattern-making, teaching children who face learning challenges, and methods for instructing kids of any age group, from elementary through high school.
Carving for Kids is a great way for you and your kids to learn together--and you'll share your child's pride and confidence when you see your young carver create unique handicrafts.
