I don’t have my kids (5 & 6) on specific projects yet, but they, especially the eldest, love using my cordless drill for drilling holes and driving in screws. Hammering nails is also good, but use a small hammer and a clothes peg to hold the nail to start. I havent got them cutting yet, but I think I should give them a go soon either with a junior hacksaw or a tennon saw and a mitre box.

I also need to make or buy some small projects that require assembly only followed by the all important painting. Don’t forget the painting! And if what they make can be given to Mum as a present, so much the better.

-- I may have lost my marbles, but I still have my love of woodworking
