Guss,
I don’t have any plans for a kid size Adirondack but I have made a number of smaller chairs and rockers. Reducing to 70%-73% of full size works very well for a child that’s about 3-6. For a toddler, (1-2) you can reduce as small as 55%-60% of full size. I use a carpenters “type” calculator to easily calculate the sizes needed. I have seen kid size plans, just can’t remember where.

I made one full size.. then one half size.. then a rocker Adirondack for a toddler but I worked off of full size plans and made changes on the fly. Feel free to copy anything.. :)
