One thing we’ve not done much of is traditional hammer and nails wood work, but when The Father Figure discovered a couple of old, small, hammers and put new handles on them… well we had to try them out!
Starting a nail isn’t easy, even for bigger hands, and there were one or two banged fingers and a bit of frustration but no major injuries. With a bit of practice and some instruction on where to put your hands so you don’t hammer your fingers they soon got better at it.
After they found some ear muffs, because it was kinda of loud with all that banging, then they really got into it. Adding some plastic bottle caps to their creations.
And to finish it off I broke out a new packet of markers…. my kids love new markers almost as much as I do!
Have you ever done wood work with your kids?
Got any good tips for us?
