the broom is deffently the first shop tool children shuold learn to deal with …. :-)
aprentice´s have to start a place … and its a good one to introduce the rest of the
shop from like saftygear as the dust mask :-) and so on
if children is cable of understanding safty rules they can already at an age of 4
use a knife under supervision (you can´t do anything ells your self than watch from distance
while you look like you sanding a project in hands )
you have to deside if she can understand and follow the rules some children can from age of 4
and others I wuolden trust them with anything in an age of 20 year
handtools is dangerous tools too but if and when they have to be exstreemly sharp so they
don´t have to use force to cut thruogh the wood but can concentrate of doing it right instead
after the broom let her sand something with you, help assemple some of your projects so she thinks
it was importen she was there to help you with the exstra hand
for electric tools the scrollsaw and the square finishsander is good starting tools

but let her make her own little projects like birdhouse , toolbox etc. where you have prepared the wood
planed and cut to size so she only have to use an eggbeater drill to make thin guideholes for scews and nails , little hammer or screwdriver and glue to assemble them with
there is so many small projects for children out there you can thoose from with good drawings to
let her paint her projects as well

you will have great time together when you and her makes them and while you talk about
things under the process you slip in little by little how to and why it has to be done so
and always safty first :-)

good luck
