The Periscope

This is a project we did awhile ago and am just now getting around to posting pictures. Grandad gave us a leftover kit from one of the kid's workshops they do. So we got to break out the tools and transform our kitchen into a workshop and make our very own periscope!



First things first, read the directions...some people may skip that but this mom needs them!



Next make sure you have all your materials.



Yes, I let a 2 year old use a hammer by himself :)




Getting the nails put in correctly. There were guide holes so he could do this step on his own.




More hammering!



Checking out how everything works.


Now time to add some personal touches.



This project was great because it involved glue, nails, hammers and markers. Who wouldn't have fun with a supply list like that??

This is AWESOME!! I love those kits--Home Depot has some cool classes for kids. I would probably have let my kids use a hammer at 2, but kudos to you that you were okay with it at the dining room table!! I don't even like my grown-up kids (and hubby) using potentially destructive tools at my table. :)

Cute and I love the step-by-step pics. :)

So awesome! And yes, you're an amazing mom to have let him have the hammer. He looks like he enjoyed it. I haven't done ours with the kids yet... =}
