We've already worked our way through most of it, enjoying the following projects: making a stick-and-hoop game, crafting a scented pomander out of orange, cloves, and cinnamon , making silhouette portraits, weaving with yarn and an oatmeal container , learning "fan talk", cooking Johnny Cakes cornmeal pancakes , making tin plates out of foil and toothpicks, making signs for cabinetmaking and bookbinding shops, making tin lanterns Good book.
Some of projects for younger folks if you have some would be great - or if your teaching primary history classes and allowed to mention early America. Some are just good things to know how to do. I'm only downgrading as somewhat more simplistic for us. Worth the buy though.
Very interesting projects with background for each of them. We really enjoyed making a lot of the projects. Some favorites were: making quill pens with turkey feathers, candle making, printer press project Ben Franklin , barometer, can lantern, and practicing fan talk. I would highly recommend it for homeschool families especially. This will be a great resource for us a we learn about Colonial America in our homeschool endeavors. There are lots of fun activities and great historical facts through out the entire book. Can't wait to use it for school in the Fall!

Very useful for school. Was expecting more pages to use as templates but this one is more along the lines of giving ideas of things to make with household objects. Still nice just wasn't what I had expected. My daughter learns the best with hands on projects.
