The Girl Scouts of Troop 2624 came to My Own 2 Hands makerspace to earn their “Woodworking” badge! Together, they learned how to use many tools: hammer, screwdriver, drill, impact driver, level, handsaw, miter saw, clamps, and a nail gun! Using these newly learned skills, they were able to make picture frames. They each were able to make their frame unique and custom to their taste by using stain and paint. Each project turned out amazing!
The girls were able to work together as a team to help each other understand the tools. Though some were initially nervous with some of the power tools, others helped to encourage everyone to take a risk and do something they had never done before!
Troop 73392 recently completed the Cadette Woodworker Badge. The girls used a variety of tools associated with woodworking. To finish the requirements for the badge the troop chose to team up with the Kiwanis of Longmont to help make hand crafted wooden toys.
The Kiwanis of Longmont have set a goal to make 4000 wooden toys to distribute by Christmas. The girls of troop 73392 pitched to finish assembling 2 large boxes of wooden toys at their first meeting in October. They hope to visit the Kiwanis workshop, which meets every Saturday morning from 9 to 11 am through December 19, to help assemble and finish more toys.
