I was cleaning up my shop corner in the garage today and decided to select a few nuts, bolts, and other odds and ends for the kids to play around with. They’re always fascinated with screws and tools. Then I gave them some wrenches and screwdrivers and let them build.
It reminded me of the erector sets I had as a kid. It kept us busy for quite a long time – building robots and horses and all kinds of stuff. It was also quite an exercise in fine motor skills. I think I’ll keep the pieces handy in a box for next time!
