One of the best things about the projects in the book is that none of them cost more than $10 to make. How many things can you do with your kids that you can say that about?
There are 24 projects in Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred that can be made by anyone, even with no experience. My husband wants to make every one in the book; he loves his workbench and using tools. However, even though the directions are so good I'm sure they could lead me through, I don't think I could make many of these projects because the thought of using a saw or certain other tools scares me.
If you are okay with using tools, then you will have a great time. The list of projects includes a:
- Treasure Chest
- Electric Guitar
- Cigar-box Synthesizer
- Pop Can Flyer
- Jitterbug: Your first robot
