Found

Nearly every page in this book is so awesome that I cannot wait to do all of the projects with Jack.
There are knitting projects, paper projects, wood projects, holiday parties and everything else under the sun.
The graphics are bright and beautiful. With a color copier it will go even farther than originally intended.
Mine is the 1953 version. It looks like there is one 1961 version on Ebay at the moment, but when I bought it last week there were several others available, so maybe it is something to look for. (Edited because someone has snatched up the Amazon copy this afternoon!)

  10. I have the Things to Make and Do Golden Paperback version from 1968. I love it. I recognized the illustrations immediately. Does yours have directions for the "Easel and Painting Box"? The boy in the illustration reminds me of Jack.

    I still have my copy from childhood and spent many happy times with it. I later found a second (older) copy that had even more in it. I still have them both and am also looking forwards to sharing them with my dc. Gill.

  18. Oh, I had that book as a kid and I think it's still with my stuff from childhood. I should check. Thanks for the memories, anyway. I'm also going to post an old book I found at a bookfair last week, but I'm away from my camera connection just now.
