What happened to our hands?

It is necessary to rescue the joy of doing with the hands. From using tools, from hurting your fingers, from seeing the product that will be useful or just allowing the pleasure of looking. Today’s children no longer have the model of adults who repair, recreate, and do not discard. However, before wood and tools, they are able to create, use their intelligence to plan and explore the possibilities of matter. Providing children with space and time to discover “doers” of things is a way to encourage creativity and the discovery of the value of their hands. That is why the carpenters’ initiative.
