Here at the Dream It! Do It! Nebraska blog, we’ve brought you other MAKE projects before. Remember how to 3D print your head?
For more summer fun, students can download the Make: School’s Out! Summer Fun Guide. Pursuing the projects that MAKE publishes–especially the projects within this guide–can be a great way for kids to chase away boredom or begin to prepare for Maker Camp. Not to mention the fact that projects like the ones included here will keep kids’ minds sharp while school’s out.
The issue is over 100 pages long and is a special 3D edition by MAKE. Yeah–it even comes with 3D glasses.
A few of the projects offered in the guide include how to build a basic guitar, cook banana pops, and if you’re feeling adventurous, how to install a zip line in your backyard. There’s even instructions on screenprinting your own shirt design. Kids can also find tool reviews written by other kids in this limited edition.
The Make: School’s Out! Summer Fun Guide comes with a print and PDF version bundled together, and as we just mentioned, also includes some super cool 3D glasses. Right now, MAKE’s limited edition guide runs $17 in MAKE’s webstore, a pretty good value considering everything you and your kids will learn from all the projects. We definitely recommend it.
Maybe one day a Nebraskan city will get its own Maker Faire like Kansas City. Kansas City’s mini Maker Faire is in its third year, and this year brought over 300 Makers and 12,000 attendees. Until then, guides like these and the many other projects for kids you can find online should help keep both you and your kids busy with a huge number of fun summer projects.
