Notes and Opinions: This one would be great for a project to do with your kids. I know we had a blast planning out some of these to do once school lets out.  The book had great step by step instructions as well as using recycoled materials which cuts down on waste. It makes it so most of the projects you do not have to go out and spend more money getting things you need.  You can use things around your house that you would have tossed out. 

Go Into This One Knowing:  Great book for all ages (with help for small kids)
