Safety Tips for Woodworking with Kids

Kids can be far savvier in woodworking than we give them credit, to begin with. Thus, it is not uncommon for parents to let their children participate in woodworking projects. It is their wild, vivid imagination that makes them better at creating fun, ingenious projects. However, safety should always be your main consideration when your beloved child is doing this type of labor, especially seeing how one minor mistake could result in a serious injury. Instead of taking any chances, follow the next advice to keep your child out of harm’s way when he/she is woodworking alongside with you:

  • The child should always wear – gloves, eye protection, and appropriate clothing;
  • Make sure the child keeps an appropriate distance between his/her face and the tool/working surface;
  • Teach the child that tools are not toys! – Never joke around with this subject;
  • When you finish the project you are working on, with the help of the child, store the tools away and clean up – teaching the child to be organized makes the workspace safer.
