Junior Carpenter

 

Today's Snack: Set some mini-cubes of cheese out on the counter for a little while to soften them. Then your child can pretend to "hammer" pretzel sticks into them, and then enjoy eating them.

Golf tees

Toy hammer

Large piece of Styrofoam

 

Kids just love to hammer things, but your hammer is no doubt too heavy, and real nails are scary and too sharp.

 

Therefore, since most households have a plastic hammer around and golf tees aren't too sharp, give these "tools" to your child to hammer golf tees into foam. Your child might want to make a design, or just hammer for the sake of hammering. It's a good eye-hand coordination exercise and doesn't make a mess . . . if your nerves can stand the noise, and it's not as bad as the real thing!
