Kids are into immediate gratification, make some kits for her to assemble. I start beginning wood workers off assembling either bird houses or bird feeder kits. Pre drill starter holes so all they have to do is insert a nail and drive it home. It should not take more than about 10 minutes to assemble or they will lose interest. If she is artistic, she’ll probably enjoy painting it. The bird feeders are always a hit. It is always exciting to see their reactions when the birds find it, and they get to learn about both wood working and nature.
