Baby Boomers wishing to share some of childhood's simple joys with their children and grandchildren will relish this book of easy home-based activities. Focusing on creativity rather than collecting, these engaging hobbies involve pets, papercrafts, painting, modeling, chemistry, and electricity. They require only common materials and can help foster a rewarding lifetime interest in art- and science-based pastimes.
Hobbies include making a woodland or swamp terrarium; growing plants from seeds, stems, and roots; building a model sailboat or outrigger; and constructing a parachute or boomerang. Other activities range from building model villages and dioramas to making a magnet or compass and growing crystals. Helpful diagrams and other drawings appear throughout the book.
