Young do-it-yourselfers can go retro with this collection of projects created just for kids by legendary designer Todd Oldham.

Inspired by Mid-Century designers and artists, Oldham has come up with 52 creative, colorful, thoughtful kid-friendly projects—from a cardboard box fort inspired by architect Luis Barragán to window decorations made from painted paper inspired by designer Russell Wright. One part design primer and two parts handmade fun, Kid Made Modern introduces kids to Mid-Century design heroes through a creative collection of playful, simple-to-make craft projects. Featuring inexpensive, easily accessible (and often recycled) materials, helpful photography, and easy-to-follow steps, kids and parents alike will have fun with the projects and find the designer’s information educational as well. Hours and hours of fun for a new generation of modernists!
