Class Description

A kids’ building workshop, and parents are welcome too. We will be constructing a small playhouse that we will be using to house the camps’ rabbits in a kid-friendly way, so that they can get to the rabbits to interact with them.

Topics to be included:

  • Proper use, safety, and care of carpenters’ tools.

  • How to use measuring devices, measure twice - cut once.

  • Basic design information, how to get the most from your lumber.

  • Wood types for this project.

  • Assembly of the structure, hand on for the kids to nail.

  • How to make and mount a door - hinges.

  • Roofing the house, shingle laying.

  • Trimming

  • Painting to complete, hands on for the kids to paint.

Like all our Construction Workshops, "Safety" comes first, so bring your own safety glasses and gloves.

Bring your own lunch. If you have access to a hammer, bring that too!

Age : Open to all. Those children under 10 years of age MUST be accompanied by an adult.

Hope you'll join us to construct the camp rabbits’ new home, while learning to build your own playhouse for you or your pets.

NOTE : All classes have a minimum number of registrants to make or sorry to say it will be cancelled. So bring your friends and tell everyone you know.

Large Family Rates are available; please call April at 940-440-8382 for details.
