Woodworking Project for kids: Squirrel Cafe

We did this “Squirrel Cafe” last summer. My son attends woodworking classes at the park he’s going for after school program. They built a race car and raced it at the downhill derby. He’s really into these type of projects. My husband found this simple woodworking project template for kids and they all put it together in few short hours in a nice sunny weekend afternoon.

You can find the template as well as what you’ll need to build a squirrel cafe here at spoonful.com.
