My son is only 4 1/2 but we gave him a small hammer, small screw drivers, nails, screws and scrap wood. He loves to just drive nails and screws into the boards! And it’s been really cool because he ended up making a cross out of it (no encouragement from us) and talking about Jesus carrying a heavy cross. So, there’s another idea for you.wearejenandkevParticipant
Bookworm….you must have met my boys! Yes, they probably would slice their fingers! I will be looking for a toaster. What is the worst that could happen? Dare I ask…….
Heather…..thanks for sharing the drawing classes. My son watched one with me and loved it! He loves drawing! That will be great! I added a few more ideas to my list that I thought I would share. I left off the ones that have already been mentioned. Most of these are unsupervised for my 6yo and 8yo. Sometimes, I have to supervise if my 2yo joins in the fun. I added a few outdoor things because my kids can go in the backyard unsupervised. Also, I will shoo them outside for short periods in the winter. Here are my additions…..
