Our local Lowe's (home improvement store) has a free kid's project once or twice a month. They provide all the materials, give the kids an apron, eye protection goggles, patches and awards of completion, and they supervise the whole thing. It's great! We went to one right before Bridget was born and let the kids build their own tool boxes. It was too fun! Then we went home and continued the fun by painting them. The boys have been carrying them around (sometimes filled with "tools" and sometimes filled with whatever they come across!) and having a ball with them!
