On Monday 30th July our shed once again hosted Woosh before & after school care children.
These kids varied in ages from about 8 to 11years. 

This year we decided to make things a bit more interesting. 
Instead of them just making swords, surf boards & anything else that came to mind; they were able to bring their own picture or photo they had previously glued to a piece of MDF cut to A4 size & supplied by us. 
Under supervision they were allowed to cut these up on our scroll saws into random shapes to make their own jigsaw puzzle. The perimeter was then glued to a pre-cut backing board to complete the puzzle.
They all thought it was so cool to be able to use a machine to do a project.

Once they finished the jigsaw it was back to making swords & daggers etc.
The kids enjoyed what they were doing so much we virtually had to start pulling the roller shutters down to make them go home!!

Many thanks to the volunteer shed members who helped to make the day such a success.
