Make Your Own Seesaw #SaturdayMorningCartoons

Playground Howtoons

Remember Teeter-totters? It’s hard to find them in playgrounds these day, so why not build your own! Howtoons teams up with Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam for an awesome comic tutorial.

Howtoons has teamed up with Lemelson-MIT InvenTeam again, to create a building and prototyping guide – a sequel to Seeing the Future! A Visual Communication Guide.

This project features the amazing and talented Jeff Parker (writer) and Sandy Jarrell (artist).

This has been a huge project – it is a 24 page document filled with toons that teach you how to use tools and how to build projects including a swing, zipline, a see saw, monkey bars, and a rope ladder. We are extremely excited and proud to share this project. Enjoy!
