Plumb—- how many kids? I would think the number of kids would limit the difficulty of the project. If there were only a few and you could supervise more closely then a more challenging project would be at hand. If there were a lot of kids—- then not so challenging.

I remember my brothers making a tool box that was all butt joints, glue and nails. They had to cut the angeled ends with a hand saw and drilled the hole for the dowel handle with an old-fashioned hand drill. As I recall they had a good time with it and the boxes managed to hang on for quite a while.

If there were a lot of kids—- you could do some pre-sawing and let them do a little hand work before the assembling of a project.
