Since Brad's 9th birthday he has moved up in Cub Scouts to the rank of Bear. We've jumped right into the new book and Brad has already completed quite a few requirements.
Over the weekend, while we were at Grammy and Grandpa's, Grandpa helped Brad make a birdhouse. He got to choose to make a house for either a bluebird, chickadee, titmouse, nuthatch, wren or house finch. The dimensions of the house that Brad made were for a bluebird.
Brad learns from Grandpa that you must double check your measurements to make everything work together.
The wood is starting to look more like a box!
Brad helps Grandpa get everything squared up on the saw.
And here is the finished product:
I think he did really well. He likes to build stuff and Grandpa has all of the tools to make it easier. He's quite excited for the next things to build...
a toolbox and a model car/truck.
Stay tuned for more creations!
