A few months back, Tony took the boys to a gun & knife show. There, the boys purchased a few knives. I am a little nervous about my 7 & 10 year old having knives, but I am also a country girl that knows this is natural & healthy for boys & men alike. I had to pray about it & let God do the protecting & guiding while they use them.
Will & Collin have been whittling a little bit. Turning sticks into spears. :Another prayer goes up:
Collin found this book at the library. As soon as we got home, he wanted to start making something.
We didn't have a lot of tools for wood carving, so we started with something that we had....
There was a "how to" make a boat out of soap. Let the whittling begin.
Using a knife, small screw driver & soap, Collin dug in.
I reminded them that "woodworking" was a long process & not a "hurry up & finish" project.
Will carving soap.
Hopefully, we'll have finished pictures to show soon.
Side Note: This is probably not a good idea to do inside like we did. There was soap dust flying everywhere. At least it is clean.
