1. Build a toy parachute
You can treat this project as an engineering challenge or follow an excellent toy parachute tutorial from Zakka Life. And check out this terrific round up of crafts that fly from The Pleasantest Thing.
2. Be a Junk Modeler!
Cardboard is a cheap and easily available material for young engineers. Build a cardboard city from Lemon Lime Adventures or visit my blog buddy Mama Smiles: Joyful Parenting who guest posted on In the Playroom about 10 wondrous things one can do with cardboard boxes.
3. Make Your Own Geoboard
I like this “industrial strength” geoboard from Crayon Box Chronicles because my 7 year old can practice screwing bolts and then play with her new board. Definitely doing one this summer!
