Incredible Woodworking Projects for Handy Kids!

Do you have a handy kid? All of my little ones amaze me with what they are capable of (when I give them the opportunity to show me, that is). And woodworking projects are no exception!

Madeline didn’t have too many opportunities when she was little, I’m afraid to say. I cringed with the idea of her using a hammer or a saw with those tiny hands.

But I have learned a lot over the years, and I am happy to report that my little guys do a lot of woodworking projects now. We taught them to use tools properly, and it is remarkable the things they can do with them. And big sister is all too happy to make up for lost time and get right into the thick of it.
