These made-from-a-kit Derby Cars were so much fun. Not only making them, but racing them. Laura and Emily may not have gotten an award for speed, but they did for style!
Laura's Woodburned Badger was hand penciled on the wood first. If you decide to woodburn anything, an air purifier is well worth the investment!
These next two items were both made at Family Learning Day and are still in the girls' room. All Emily had to do was put her shelf
together and stain it. Laura's peg shelf
also required assembly and paint.
The following three projects were made using a scroll or jig saw. Laura's turtle puzzle
was made using a thicker piece of wood. The horses
were cut out of scraps of thin wood that Mark had in the basement. Emily painted her free-hand design black. Laura found her design from a scroll saw book and stained it.
Garrett's birdhouse was made in a class at Family Learning Day. Each child had a pile of precut pieces that needed to be sanded and assembled in class.
Drawing and PaintingWe took homeschool drawing with the help of a little booklet I ran across by Mark Kistler. We purchased his Draw Squad book which I highly recommend. This led us to the Draw Today program which was used to make the Lincoln and Mona Lisa charcoal drawings. Our county 4H office was always looking for drawings to put on their programs and brochures.
Scale ModelGarrett was always building things. This is just a sampling of the things he put together.
