The crayon truck has stalled, but not crashed. Because the girl’s saw is Bad, I don’t dare let her saw the bits. And because my drill is too big for her, she hasn’t been drilling either. And that means she hasn’t been participating. And that means? Grumpy Girl.
So today I ordered some kids tools from Dieter Schmid – a small brace and bit set, a small eggbeater drill, and a child-sized but actually sharp saw.
And for me, some diamond sharpening stones so I can get some of my tools in order properly.
While we wait for the new tools we may do something else. I need to look for a project where accuracy can be sacrificed on some things, and where there is lots of nailing. She loves to nail stuff.
