McCall's Golden Do-It Book

McCALL'S GOLDEN DO-IT BOOK
adapted by Joan Wyckoff

Illustrated by William Dugan
Golden Press, 1960


I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for vintage children's craft books. Though, I always seem to amass more than we could ever possibly craft from. This being one of my faves.

A long day. A short night. Sleep tight everyone, and if you're looking to make ice cream spoon toys or salt-and-starch animals, you know where to find me!

I LOVED this book as a kid. My mom had a copy from her 1950's childhood (along with another called the Make-It book) and I spent hours busy with projects from it. I still have both books and plan to use them when my own daughter is old enough (she's only 2 1/2 and yes, I am obsessively collecting books for her too:)

This is great! My dad passed down a set of books that were labeled things like, "Science Projects for Boys" and "Having Fun with Science" from his 1950's childhood. My siblings and I always used these for our science fairs and experimenting around the house.

This book makes me wish we could roll back time.

I actually have this book in my collection ~ I received it as a birthday gift when I was 6.

I make profit from this book. I used it as a reference in creating unique artworks for children.
