Think you would ever let your kiddo make something with a power tool or a hammer? You're probably saying NO WAY, but we may just change your mind after you see the next episode of What's Up, City Kid?! Join Tristin and Tyler at the Brooklyn Navy Yard to check out a unique kids program that gets kids excited about construction and yep, you guessed it - power tools. Construction Kids helps kids create and repair projects ranging from skateboards, to toys to decorative wood flowers, using all natural materials. Using teamwork and tools scaled for kid's hands, children really get a chance to dive right in and implement basic construction skills while learning the importance of safety. It was great to see Tristin and Tyler learn how to properly hold a hammer and where they should put their hands for support when they are drilling something. What do you think about kids learning new skills and using their hands in new ways to create and strengthen their fine motor skills? Let me know in the comments below.
