By cleverly combining creativity with eco-awareness, this timely book encourages children aged 7-14 to put down their mobile devices and get involved.

From building a wind turbine and a go-kart to creating light, growing vegetables, and making green gifts, Eco Kids Self-Sufficiency Handbook offers a wide range of ways to capture the imagination and positively contribute to the world around us.

Twenty-eight exciting projects support integrated STEAM learning (science, technology, engineering, art, and math)—STEAM is an educational concept sometimes known as STEM when art isn't included. All of these projects use most of the 5 skills, but some require you to use more of certain skills than others. A handy icon alongside each project shows you which of the five STEAM skills are emphasized.

Projects include:

  • Campfire circle
  • Backyard chicken coop
  • Wind turbine
  • Solar-powered buggy
  • Knitted bedspread
  • Furoshiki wrap
  • ...and many more!

With easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and photographs—and a little adult supervision—no project is too difficult for children to complete!
