::: home made trowels
When we were both at Ringwood Uniting Preschool we noticed that the children were playing in the sandpit, smoothing out the sand with some fabulous trowels made by a lovely parent.
We thought that we would have a shot of making our own too. Coincidently we had a couple of boxes of dressed pine off cuts we had already picked up from Resource Rescue for another project and felt that they would be perfect for the job.
We bought some $1 handles from Bunnings, then got out the trusty drill, a pencil for marking the spots and a screwdriver – too easy!
We marked where the holes need to be drilled by measuring the handle then drilled holes all the way through.
Next we screwed in the screws through the back …
… and screwed on the handles to the other side.
Now they are all ready to go when the children arrive. We can’t wait to see them play with them!
