Early American Toys & Games A How To Guide by Charles WM. Overstreet
Instead of spending a small fortune having the newest gadgets and electronic games, how about teaching your children and grandchildren the marvels of self-reliance, imagination, creativity, and a love of the great outdoors? Here are complete instructions on how to make seventy-five classic toys and instructions for playing forty-six games like our grandparents played. Early American Toys and Games will show you and a child how to build a scooter, a sailboat, stilts, whistles, a periscope, and much, much more. There are games for the very young like London Bridge, Farmer in the Dell, and Train, or games for older children like Hopscotch, Crack the Whip, and Mumbly Peg. Whatever your choice, there are hours of educational, inexpensive, entertainment for any child.
