simple and easy wood craft (woodcraft) kits and projects for kids
Create your own things
Most children are eager to build something on their own and are always eager and proud to show it to mom and dad, especially if it is something used around the house.
There is very little pride (or older)
Children who try to do something \"entirely on their own\", even if mom and dad help and provide guidance.
Wooden Craft bags or items can meet this demand for many children.
They help the smaller children to be nimble and focused.
Older children can exercise their creativity by adding their own designs through paint or drawings on the project.
Wooden Crafts for young children have many simple wooden items for smaller children, from the napkin rack or Toolbox (pictured below)
Give them toys after finishing the work.
These simple kits can be used with only a few simple tools, but even if they are few, they can help children understand the value and use of these tools.
Most households already have the tools necessary in the homeowner\'s kit, but without tools like a screwdriver or hammer, the price is not expensive and can often be used continuously through many, many timber projects once purchased.
Kids who have just started the wood project need something very simple and may be below their normal skill level to build confidence.
While an 8-year-old isn\'t just simply sticking a few pieces of wood together to produce the napkin stand shown, it could be a good start anyway.
Children learn some basic knowledge, they can make wooden crafts, simple and quick.
I helped my two 9 year old grandchildren make a toolbox for their dad on Father\'s Day
This is the limit of their attention in about 2 hours.
As skill levels and understanding grow, the complexity of a simple wood kit can and should be extended to things that can take hours or even days.
At the same time, be careful not to provide items that extend your child\'s attention too much.
If they are too boring to feel worth a few days of work, they become frustrated and lose interest.
Your child needs a space to complete their wood craft project.
At this level the kitchen table may be enough with some protective cover.
Newspapers, or old blankets.
You can expect them to use at least sandpaper and glue and it can be messy.
However, using a hammer on a kitchen table may not be a good idea!
As your child grows older, design wooden items for older children and acquire skills that are not available when young.
Both the wood burning kit and the more advanced wood building kit are possible.
The set of tools required for more advanced work will also be extended.
Simple power tools such as drill bits, electric screwdriver or Dremel tools may be appropriate depending on age and ability.
A handsaw or other saw may be required.
Hammer of course.
Together with more advanced tools, it is a more dedicated workspace.
While temporary work benches can be set up in a garage or in an empty basement, consider folding work benches such as Black and Decker Workmate.
These small work tables can be folded up for storage, can have different heights, and contain a vise device for fixing the workpiece.
Older kids can learn to use books and plans to make their timber projects and increase the variety of things they can build.
You can consider writing a simple plan with some raw materials;
Let them pick their own wooden items from the plan and start from scratch instead of pre-cut pieces.
Wooden projects built by children and teenagers on display at county fairs are often shocking in their beauty and quality.
We just need to give them a chance.
