Ethan is one of my kiddos that really enjoys anything hands on and working with wood has been no exception, he still loves his hand held drill that he is allowed to use with supervision and scraps of wood Jake sets aside from previous projects for the boys.
Ethan has been having fun using small pieces of wood we have to make his own creations, he found the wood in the garage and just kept going back for more pieces and coming up with new things to make. It kept him busy for quite a while! I'm sure Jake making thing from wood has something to do with this new interest :)
Here are his creations. He made a house, 2 letter "E's", and a flag, the older boys helped him in the end use the hot glue gun because the elmers glue didn't hold the pieces together very good.
