Weekend Whittling For Kids And Parents

Beginner Guide with 31 Easy Projects for Digital Detox & Family Bonding

About the Book

◆ Are you a parent looking for ways to engage with your kids, bond with them, and have fun?

◆ Are you looking for ways to help turn off smartphones, tablets, and television and still have your kids and teens occupied with a fun activity?

 In an ever-changing society, there aren't a whole lot of activities that are geared towards children, teens, and parents. Marketing strategies have become so specific that they target the exact age ranges.

Fortunately, if you take a step back from "modern" society, you can get involved in some age-old crafts and practical skills that are fun for the whole family!

Wood carving and whittling are two such crafts. Not only are there projects that range in difficulty for different skill and age groups, but there are some projects that can be completed by two people, giving you a chance to interact and bond with your children face to face. Without the input of noise and visual stimulation from screen entertainment, you and your children can talk to each other and create something together.

Wood carving and whittling are detail-oriented crafts, so it is best to unplug completely, removing distractions like phones and screened devices while participating. It is a good excuse for you and your children to step back and develop a different set of skills.

By utilizing this book, you'll learn why wood carving and whittling are important skills. You will be taught basic techniques and be introduced to the proper tools and materials for these crafts. Additionally, you'll have several beginner projects with step-by-step instructions to start with your children. This is a great place to start your and your children's digital detox and bonding activities!

I've included photographs of realistic beginner projects, explaining their processes and standard operating procedures.

Below are the topics you would find inside:

✓ Introduction to Whittling

✓ Tools

✓ Process and Techniques ( 1 Project)

✓ Step By Step Beginner Projects ( 30 Projects)

✓ Conclusion and Free Online Resources

In the last chapter, I've provided a link to free online resources for planning your next projects.

♥Cheers, and let's start the exciting journey!♥

About the Author

Stephen Fleming
Stephen Fleming


Welcome to my profile!

Here's my story:

I am Business Consultant in my mid-thirties with a Bachelor's in Engineering & Master in Business Management.

I have worked in the areas of IT Advisory & Roadmap and Project Management for transformational projects. Currently, I am working with the public sector in the e-Governance space, trying to take the benefits of technology to the masses through innovation and customization.

This aspect of disruptive technology beyond regular discussions/implementation excites me. I am always looking for that case study in South America, Africa, or Asia, where the game's rules have been changed to solve the massive scale of the problem!

On the personal front, the last ten years have been a roller coaster ride managing my career and family. My elder son is seven years old, and the second one turned 2.

Besides Technology, I have been into Leather Crafting, wood crafting, and foraging for the last five years. It is a perfect hobby for my weekends, and I enjoy crafting beautiful gifts for my family and friends.

I have been working consistently and most importantly enjoying my current phase of life, career, and growth. With all the experience and renewed vigor, I will surely achieve my goals in a stipulated time frame. I decided to jot down my learning and experiences along the way and share it with you.

 Will See You Soon, Friend!
