Tinkering with Wood

Part of our new Tinkering Series, this session provided educators the opportunity to explore what tinkering is and how educators can intentionally incorporate tinkering into their early learning and child care programs.

This session focused on reviving the ‘lost art’ of utilizing wood and woodworking in early learning and child care programs, and how educators can ‘bring it back’ into their practice. Educators used various real tools and consider health and safety, and risk benefit analysis.

What Participants Had to Say:

“Enjoyed woodworking and various tools and materials for our children to explore. Safety first.”

“Gained more knowledge on how to introduce woodworking.”
