« Part 11: Grandson 5 year Part 12 of Grandsons in the workshop:: Continued.. series Part 13: 5 yr. old finishes the box »

Its that moment. The kid picks up the drill and “bang” its got power. noise, can drill holes, drive drywall screws, this is great in the workshop. And magnets. Ear protectors yup make good belt holders yes they fit around the 5 year old waist. so ready to go. Now we did drill some holes. And drive some dry wall screws in and out and in and out. magnets…pick up washers, drill bit with magnets. So we did have a talk about the box and the hasp and how it was going. But he was ready to move on he is 5 and a half. I got the consultation from him and the go ahead after he figured out how the hasp would mount and work. All in all I was pleased with that part too.

Next blog on the box and details of edges and the hasp. Today was more about him learning and interest in tools.

Yep. They do move on, don’t they. It’s hard to take sometimes, but it’s just the way it is. Limited attention span is probably a good thing for exploring the world. They’ll come back to the interesting things later, I suppose.
