    truly great projects for the youngsters. Most of all your dedication to make all of the parts for them to finish and assemble. When I started middle school one of my teachers decided it would be a fun project for each of us kids to make a bird house. Yeah right! She showed up with a stack of 1 by wood some hand saws hammers and nails a brace and an adjustable bit. For 1 hour every day for a week we destroyed our class room with saw dust and the sound of nails being bent. A few of us kids were a lot more fortunate than the others since we lived on farms and had been doing things since we became enough to pull 1 end of a 4 ft cross cut saw. My bird house turned out to look like 1 hole outhouse but at least the 4 sides top and bottom fit together. most though became a failed attempt to resemble anything.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
