Woodworking Skill Builder Games for Children | How to Make. As many of you know my kids are out in the workshop with me almost all the time. Ethan, #DIYEthan, is out with me the most and he is always hammering, driving screws or gluing something together. For one of his Christmas gifts I decided to make him a finger dexterity game that doubles as woodworking for him to play while he is in the shop with me.
These three fine motor skill games are made using some Ash hardwood that I had laying around and a bunch of nuts and bolts laid out in a pattern to help him, or any other kids, to gain some finger strength and coordination. One game uses some carriage bolts, tee nuts and regular hex nuts to allow the children to spin the nuts with their hand. Another activity uses some t-inserts and different size screws to teach the kids to use a screwdriver properly. The last game uses some more t-inserts and hex bolts to teach kids to use a box or adjustable wrench.
I understand that not everyone is blessed to have a shop full of fancy power tools but this project can easily be made with a cheap pine 2x4, a hand saw and a drill if that is all you have. The effort of making these games for your kids or family members will be well worth it.
NOTE: Not all kids are the same, make sure the person you are building this for is old enough for such a toy.**
