Cadette “Woodworker” badge at MO2H

My Cadettes had a wonderful time completing their “Woodworker” badge at My Own 2 Hands (MO2H) in Littleton! The instructor was so patient with them as they used a screwdriver, saw, hammer, and level.

The girls leading the badge went ahead of our event date to discuss the badge with the owners and pick a project to make as the last step of the badge. What an amazing company from start to end!

One of my Girl Scouts was VERY hesitant to even come to the workshop, but she ended up being one of the girls with her hand up quickly asking to try a tool first! They were definitely risk-takers for this badge.
