Let's Build!

My husband made this fabulous work bench for Owl for Christmas
It has been a huge hit! Now of course hubby has some GRAND ideas on what will be built on this bench while I need simple ideas to do with Owl.

Luckily, I found some great wooden toy kits from Montgomery Schoolhouse. The set we chose had four different vehicles in it. Today Owl decided to work on the train. These are perfect for little hands since the holes are predrilled and the pegs can easily be tapped into place.

With his glasses on ( safety first always!) he went right to work.

The assembled train...

Of course, we needed to spruce it up a bit so out came the paint.
Owl was VERY serious about his color choices and where each color went on the train.

( Yes, he is still in his has just been one of those days!)

Owl was pretty excited about his finished product, especially because he did it by himself - which is really important these days!
