Twice a week we have "shop day" where different kids will come and work in the wood shop making pens. Bro. Valentin or Pastor teach these classes. They've been verrrry busy lately!
When a kid comes and makes his very first pen, he gets to keep it for himself.
After that, their creations are added to the stockpile to be sold.
There have been some really fantastic ones made lately!!
These boys have recently started coming to church with their parents. They love working in the shop!
One of the boys in the above picture made this pen his first time - I thought it was pretty fabulous!
The girls started getting a little jealous of the boys making all these cool pens so they requested being added to the shop schedule. So far, they have made some really nice pens. In fact, I heard someone say that the girls have steadier hands and a special eye for detail and their pens may be superior to the boys'....
Get a little competition going!! :)
