 Large Construction Skills Learned
Through Small Projects for Today's Learners

Woodworking is a lifelong skill and a valuable hobby.  When introduced early in life, children of all ages can benefit from building confidence and growing their understanding of basic woodworking skills.

Whether you're a school administrator, teacher, parent, or grandparent... we have simple and easy to follow wood projects to introduce your child/children to the world of woodworking.

Give your child the gift of a new skill to last a lifetime!

  • Building small wood projects can help children develop a sense of accomplishment and boost their confidence as they see their creations take shape!
  • Your child will practice following instructions, using basic tools safely and accurately, and apply problem-solving skills to complete a project.
  • Woodworking can be a new hobby for your child to explore, helping them discover their interests and passions.
  • Woodworking is a hands-on activity that can help children disconnect from technology, reducing their screen time and giving them a break from cell phones and video games.
  • By completing a woodworking project, children can develop a sense of pride and ownership over something they have made, and it can be a lasting reminder of their achievements.
