Ready, Set, Build! Unlike manufactured kits, Engineering 4 Little Hands provides the opportunity for trial and error learning and real-world application. The 4-8 year-olds will use blueprints, a customized miter box with hobby saw and sustainable basswood strips to analyze, compare, create and compose squares, rectangles and triangles. The fun continues with 4 wood vehicle bases. Children apply their understanding of geometry, engineering and woodworking to build a truck, helicopter, airplane and sailboat! Measure! Saw! Assemble!
Glue! There is REAL work to be done!
Child safety, durability, and building precision have been carefully considered. The Little Hands Workshop is easily mounted on a desk or worktable in your home or classroom with the provided C clamps. Your Workshop items will last for years! Replenish consumable basswood strips, wood vehicle bases and vehicle parts with the Little Hands Refill Pack, sold separately!
