The American Girl's Handy Book
Turn-of-the-Century Classic of Crafts and Activities

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 hobies such as needlework and painting to suggestions for planning picnics and playing games. Hundreds of simple and timeless ideas and activitites 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.

Unabridged reproduction of The Girls Handy Book: How to Amuse Yourself and Others, originally published in 1887.
