Excerpt from War Time Occupations: A Manual of Simple Constructive Work Suitable for Home and School

"Teacher, teacher, what shall I do?
I'm all through, I'm all through;
I've finished all I've begun;
What shall I do now I've got that done?"

So paraphrased a clever teacher the insistent demands of her pupils for something further to do. Many have been asked, but fewer have answered to wholly mutual satisfaction.

Now comes the great war which touches more or less the lives of every one of us, and with one voice we cry, "What shall I do to help?" Whatever may be said on the other side, it is certain that as a nation we shall reap many benefits, and some of them are already apparent in the increased industry of the people, their plainer mode of living, and their greater seriousness of thought.

This little volume presents an educational opportunity arising out of the situation, and incidentally formulates an answer to the eager questioning of youth. It shows how the handwork of children may meet a real demand, and thereby re-act on the interest and enthusiasm of children to be a part of real life. There has been no attempt to include such products as require technical skill or advanced knowledge. Everything here described is of simple character and was originally intended as part of an elementary manual training course.

The possibility of producing these articles by classes of young children was fully demonstrated in the Boston Public Schools when thousands of them were sent to the Metropolitan Chapter of the Red Cross for use in the Christmas bags.
