Little boys and girls love to dig in a sandbox and with their own backhoe they can really have fun. Give your child hours of fun by building a backhoe that is strong and sturdy.
Kids seldom need an excuse to play out-of-door. Give them more incentive with a great seesaw, go-cart or sled, made with free outdoor wooden toy plans. There are also plans to build a vintage boy-sized backhoe that really works. Use wood seal or waterproofing to outdoor toys to maintain the wood.
Build old-fashioned stilts or a scooter, just as grandpa had. There's no need for motors or fancy machinery when they use kid power. These simple plans are designed for durability and are easy to construct using basic tools and woodworking skills.
Involve your children, creating fun and useful toys they will use for years. This is a good opportunity to teach woodworking skills, as well as how properly to use and maintain tools. Use galvanized or stainless fasteners for outdoor items and use treated lumber for durability.
