  • Our woodworkers club activity this month

    An elementary school teacher from a nearby town contacted our club to ask us to give a demonstration of things to make/do with wood working tools. We spent two hours there with the 24 children ranging in ages from four to eleven. We brought ,with us, toys that were finished but needed wheels installed. Those that wanted to , painted them (cars and critters) and installed the wheels. Five guys from our club attended and we had the kids nailing into boards, (they loved that) nailing together small bird houses and installing the wheels. I also brought thirty 3-d cut horses and I taped them back together after cutting so the kids could take the pieces apart and reveal the horse inside. It is good we had five of us there. Four would also have worked but no less. There were three teachers there to help, also. With all that adult supervision the children were very well behaved. (Of course, a lot more fun than arithmetic!)

    Thanks to your group for taking time to work with the kids. Looks like everyone had a good time and I am sure the kids and teachers were thrilled to have the activity. Kuddos to all. Thanks for sharing with us.

          Great stuff! I really like the cars. It is really nice when a club gets together to do something for the community.

          Our club just made 153 flowers for Mothers day that will be donated to local nursing homes. One of our members got the Girl Scouts to come and help paint them. What a blast.
