I love this idea! It’s a great project for the woodworker in the family. Turn your boy loose with a hand saw, some pallet wood, a tape measure, hammer and nails. Add a few throw pillows and it could really dress it up! What a GREAT low cost project to learn some woodworking skills! See the how-to here!
Titus 2:3 says that we are to be "...teachers of good things...". We believe that part of these good things are practical skills that we all need in every day life to care for our family and neighbors. One of our primary responsibilities as parents is equip our children with the skills and tools to one day be productive, well rounded adults. Children need to be exposed to many different areas of work. Not only should they know how to work, but they should want to work. May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us- yes, establish the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17
