Something to Do, Boys (…& Girls too!)


Something To Do, Boys: A Book for Wide Awake Boys (PDF ebook) – This immensely appealing and well illustrated volume was edited by Edna Foster and originally published way back in 1916. It is a great old fashioned collection of hands-on projects and activities for boys (and girls too!) who love to make things, grow things, build things, and create their own fun. It is a diverse collection of fully illustrated plans for such things as:

Toy building
Furniture building
Construction projects
Games to play
Raising small animals
Foods to make and eat
Art projects
Nature projects
… and much more.

Since this is a scanned PDF of the original book, it would be best viewed on a computer, and not on small portable devices.

2 Thoughts.

  1. What a great old book! Thanks for finding and sharing this. It’s too bad that some of the supplies (like wooden crates) aren’t as readily available as they were 100 years ago, but maybe the hunt for supplies will lead us on some interesting jaunts to antique shops.

  2. Thanks for all the great downloads!!! We really appreciate the great titles you provide! The kids are always looking to see “What’s new today” Thanks again and may you be blessed in return!
