Intentional Activity:

Shop Sessions

Go to the garage and/or shop, show your kids a tool, how it works, and of course with safety in mind, allow them to use the tool!

It is a fun way to bond with your kids, for them to learn about said tool or tools, and to spark imagination of how it could be used!
