Default Holiday Project

So I do random projects with my 6 year old to spend time together and incorporate learning, and I figured this holiday weekend was a good time to work on getting her more interested in math by doing some geometry and scaling. So we printed out the Broncos logo and blew it up onto a 24x48x1 panel.



Now the ****ty part comes... she's 6 so I don't want her around power tools yet... so I have to carve this thing out with a coping saw before we can have fun with the paints.

Anyone else do family projects?

Excellent idea.

My 7 year old daughter and I built an Estes Rocket, painted it and we got to launch it today. The 1st time I used a B engine for the shake out run. It was rated up to D engines so the next time I put a C engine in and it tore away the engine compartment, our glue job gave out and pushed it upinto the rocket and hosed the paracute but it went very high very fast.

I forgot how much fun it was to build and shoot.

I am going to try your idea out though.

That's awesome. I keep meaning to order one but I keep forgetting!

I wanna try and get all the sawing done tomorrow, but that thing is an inch thick and considerably large, and her attention span is semi limited so we'll see. If she's super motivated she'll make me saw at it until it's done tomorrow.

Go get yourself a cheap jig saw at home depot. You can find one for around $30 that will save you a ton of time and forearms. Then take the coping saw and get the areas that need more delicate cuts.

6 YO is not too young for power tools IMO. Especially something as basic as a jig saw. Can't think of a safer power tool actually. Would I let my kindergartner run stuff through the table saw? Of course not.

Keep the learning going & teach her that power tools are to be respected but not feared.

Yeah that turned into a necessity pretty quick.

The newspaper ended up being pretty pointless...





Now onto the paint

When you said you were doing a weekend project, Rev, I thought this is what you were talking about...

Package it in a box. Put my address on it and take it up to your local post office. Ask them to ship it next day air. Next step is to PM me your paypal info for payment. I'll take care of the mounting..

Thanks guys. It's surprisingly not a bad work load to do even at that size.

No thanks. Oh, and I got the acrylics from Michaels and asked about model rockets and they don't have them at this one.

Do you have any ideas on mounting it?
