This was one fun day. I did all the prep work and cutting out the pieces, then let my kids spread the glue and shot the nail gun. I held onto the gun of coarse, they just pulled the trigger. It is so cool to see them smile as they take a pile of wood and make something with it. I think their favorite part was drilling the holes.

The birdhouses are made from some leftovers from the fence I put up in the backyard last year, so they will fit right in attached to the fence posts.
