Simple graphics and clearly explained text.

      The book’s first part concentrates on Home Ec. skills and is divided into five sections: Cooking, Sewing, Laundry and Clothing, Domestic Arts, and Life Skills. You’ll find clear instructions on preparing a variety of foods, canning, repurposing leftovers. You’ll tackle a variety of sewing-related tasks including fixing broken zippers; separating, washing and ironing clothes. Clean a home, including removing gum and common stains from carpet, as well as important life skills like tying a tie and building a household budget.

      The second section tackles a range of traditionally taught shop skills: Domestic Repair, Woodworking and Metalworking, Plumbing, Electrical and Mechanical. Skills taught include hanging a picture, plastering a wall, replacing a damaged section of carpet, and various building projects, troubleshooting plumbing issues, installing light fixtures, changing flat tires and oil, sharpening a lawn more blade and much more.

    Set of 12 carving tools with wooden handles includes 2 V-shapes, 1 C-shape, 3 U-shapes, an awl, 3 slanted blades and 2 flat blades. The handles are about 4" long and the metal blades are 1" with a sharp, beveled tip. Blades are .25" to .75" wide. These are perfect for block printing where you carve an image onto wood, roll ink over it and lay paper on top to make several copies of the image. You could also carve vinyl or linoleum for printing images. There is some safety instruction on the package, but these tools are quite sharp and should be handled very carefully. Basic techniques for holding and using the tools are included, but not enough to really guide a student who has never used these before. We carry a video called The Art of Block Printing which has very good instruction in this technique and would better address how to safely use these tools. ~Sara
