Walker, 6 years old, was very keen to use a real hand saw. We picked out a few lengths of wood and cut them into small and large lengths to be used for our holder. Then we cut a 1/2 inch score into the top of the branch to hold the photo. After some light sanding (a job that Walker really got into) our holder was ready to display photos and postcards.
Not only was this a fun and short project my kiddo thoroughly enjoyed, it was also a great opportunity to explore our neighborhood, notice the flowers and take in some autumn air. These little holders will make great Christmas gifts as well - hand made with love by a proud six-year-old.
