Woodworking may sound a bit too advanced for young children, but it really depends on how young they are. If they are six or older, then they can be ready for the task. Younger siblings can play as spectators so they’ll have something to look forward to when they grow a bit more. Of course, you can allow them to tinker here and there.
Because I do carpentry and simple home projects, woodworking is something very close to my heart. I would love to teach it to my children because I’m sure it won’t only be fun but beneficial too, when they become adults.
Besides, kids take pleasure in working with their hands. They love to build (and destroy) things so woodwork is certainly a perfect activity. It will enable them to manipulate different pieces and turn them into various objects. It will make them feel like they’re mommy or daddy hocus-pocusing things and turning them into something new. What fun!
