Kids Creations with Proxxon Power Tools

Hi everyone Steph Ackerman here today with some cute reindeer ornaments that are perfect to create with the kiddos.  While you use the power tools, show the kids the correct way to use the tools and have them help put together each ornament.

Start by sanding each block of wood with the Delta Sander.

Next, use the Precision Rotary Tool to drill holes in each piece.
Paint each piece with Folk Art Milk Paint in Petticoat.

Have the kids add wiggly eyes and a red pompom for a nose, then wrap a pipe cleaner around each piece to create the reindeer antlers.

Add some wire to create hangers.  Then make bows from red pipe cleaners making some of the ornaments more feminine.

Have the kiddos hang them on the Christmas tree and let them admire their work.

Be sure to expose your kids to power tools so they can see how much fun they are to work with when handled properly.

Thanks for stopping by.
