Ever notice those kids who love to stare at the sky? Maybe you have a pilot in training? Written especially for the child who dreams of soaring above the clouds, this book shows parents and kids how to create cool airborne projects together-including a Blinking UFO to a Hot-Air Balloon and a Water-Bottle Rocket.
Step-by-step instructions, illustrations, shopping and supply lists, and recommended tools accompany a variety of fun and stimulating activities. Each chapter has an introductory story and up to four activities for kids and adults, rated for skill level. From building a fleet of Popsicle stick airplanes to constructing a fantasy jet pack, Every Kid Needs Things That Fly gives parents and kids the tools and instructions they need to take off to where imagination is fuel and the sky is no longer the limit. It's a must-have addition to any workbench!
