Default Projects for the kids

The kids have been on me about a tree house for a year now. We'll...we have some time now. I don't think I am ready to start up a new framing crew, but they are fun to work with.

I need some more ideas. What is going on at your house?

Nice, we're replacing our front lawn with bark chips and a little creek feature and bushes. Kids are shoveling up all the grass every day. We got a load of bark delivered while they were still open. Gonna have to wait a while on the plants though.

I got an email Al's where you can call them up and tell them what plants you want. They'll go collect your order and you can go pick it up curbside.........

Google up gliders made from meat trays or airplanes made from pizza boxes. Add a large rubber band or wrist rocket launcher and look out...

We ordered Hello Fresh this week, big cooler came with three nights dinners in it, and we have the kids make the meals. Having everything step by step and pre-portioned, they can't screw it up.

Amazing how they don't complain about the food when they make it themselves too.

8 year old daughter loves rocks. Everywhere she goes, she looks for 'funny looking' rocks and fills her pockets. Or mine. So, there is a 3 lb rock tumbler on its way.

In the meantime we bought two Easter-Egger chicks and set up a brooder in the garage. She spends time every day playing with them, cleaning the box, and filling the feeder. This fall we'll be getting blue/green eggs mixed with the brown ones from our other hens.


Today she searched youtube for projects and found a recipe for slime. So, she thought blue would be a good color so now her hands are stained blue. It'll wear off in a week or so.

Sounds just like my 8 yr old . Rocks...yep. Chicks...check. Don't get me started on the science experiments. .

We are cutting lots and lots of firewood. Kids love running the wood splitter. 10 cords and probably that much to go of dead trees on our place. That was going to be there summer job. My 10 and 12 year old will have a lot of wood to sell when this virus is over. Last night we made the 5 gallon bucket mouse trap. They both got one last night. Going to have a big garden this year, just trying to find new things to keep us all entertained. HA
