Woodshop

 

I'm a builder/designer who started volunteering in the schools when my own kids were in school. Much to my surprise kids were appreciative of the hands on activities I did (many copied from old science books) and I went on to teach woodworking and science for the city Parks and at a Montessori school.  Parents and teachers kept asking about both woodworking and my set of Builder Boards so I wrote two books: Woodshop for Kids and Builder Boards. A description of these books and ordering information can be found on the following pages.

On the "Do It Yourself" page are some other activities and projects I've done with kids. Feel free to copy/adapt them. I hope this site motivates a few builders to tap into the magic of working with kids.
