[01/25/20]   Forging hammers with...well, hammers! This is the project the kids chose for the beginning of the second semester. I don't have pre-planned projects in camps or classes. I like the kids to tell me what interests them. Imagine that? Kids being creative rather than being told what to do.
THAT is the big secret behind what we do.


Whoa! I'm not easily impressed because I believe in the ability of kids. But wow these handmade hammers far exceeded my expectations. The bar at Huck Finn just went way up. #proudteacher #mrbroncoisimpressed
