Toolbox for Daddy

This evening my grandson along with my help created this cute little tool box for his daddy for Father's Day. It was so much fun. He has got so much better at this than when he was here back in December visiting. For a 5 year old he does pretty good.

He did most of the gluing except around the side part of the lid where there was a lot of curves. He actually was able to do all the inking and where I thought he has messed up by applying to much after it was completed looked really good and like it was planned that way. He is extremely happy with it.

Here are a few pics of our creation.






Again this was so much fun. 
He loves to play in Nana's craft room and for me to watch him grow in his abilities is amazing.
