If you’d like your boys to learn all the skills mentioned above (and more), THE BOY'S GUIDE TO HOME SKILLS is the perfect "how to" guide. Designed for boys age 9-15, this manual provides a wealth of practical, old-fashioned boy know-how with enough information (and helpful illustrations!) on each topic to let your son try his hand at cooking, cleaning, gardening, building, whittling, camping, fishing and home repair – just to name a few. It also includes loads of recipes, basic sewing skills, and laundry information – for when Mom isn’t home.
Dads can also get involved in some of the bigger projects, like building the log cabin and the split-rail fence. Dads may also want to test out the camping, hunting, or fishing sections with their sons, and help them stock their toolbox once it's completed.
A wide range of "hands on" projects, lessons and activities are included in this unique guide. It is perfect for homeschooling a basic "home economics" course, and a great guide for any family wanting their boys and young men to have practical, helpful skills on the homefront.
