The DIY (do it yourself) trend has taken the world by storm, but DIY projects for kids is still a fairly new concept. Red Toolbox, a company that has designed a high quality product line of kids' carpentry project kits and children's tools, has gone a long way in bringing kids' wood projects into the mainstream.DIY isn't just for mom and dad anymore thanks to Red Toolbox, now kids of 8+ can participate in a number of joint parent and DIY projects for kids. Each kids' wood project was carefully developed to match the young family member's chronological and ability stages, while encouraging development of new skills. These DIY projects for kids not only make children feel they are helping their parents around the house; they enable them to actually build useful carpentry projects using real tools. Just like DIY projects for adults, all of the kits come with clear directions, but the Red Toolbox DIY projects for kids include directions that are mainly illustrations, so the children can follow along and understand what comes next. To further encourage decision-making and creativity, all of the children's wood assembly projects can be left as is, or decorated or stained according to the child's desire. All of the kids wood projects teach appreciation of self-achievement and new ways of building and even fixing things that may need repairing around the house. While everyone in the family is having fun connecting with each other and creating real carpentry projects, DIY projects for kids nurture a child's innate desire to build, learn and construct useful items.
