I’m going to be doing the holiday shop (santa’s work shop) for a few of the local schools in my area ! I’m looking for ideas for fast , easy projects with little cost to make , so I can donate them for the under privileged childeren to give to their parents for the holidays (x-mas & such) . Childern of all walks of life also find joy in giving to their parents and other family members on the holidays , It gives them a sense of pride,and happyness! The school asks that I make sure that it would be something of a non-religious background to all cultures !If anyone has any plans or ideas please send them to me soon december 17th is my deadline. Thank you everyone that took the time to read this !Happy thanks giving!!!!!


(note: I have access to lots of scrap 2×4 2×6 2×8 2×10 2×12 all less than 24” long free , also kids have be able to carry it ,Thanks again! )

-- I love this site !

An interesting project , and I guess it is that time of year again. I hope you had lots of success last year and are up to the task again this year.

Try searching toys on our website. If you don’t find anything there you could send private messages to the Jocks that make toys. Good luck.

Small wooden puzzles like the “simple burr” might be good. I just made one for myself out of a scrap piece of koa the cost me 25 cents. It was pretty easy to cut out with my scroll saw but I’m betting you could make a jig and spit them out even faster. I think it took me about a half hour to make mine on the scroll saw on my first attempt. I am hooking a eyelet screw onto the end and hanging them n the tree like ornaments.
