Power Carving With Kids

Teaching carving with a rotary tool is fun and the results are quite amazing.  As this photo clearly shows, power carving can be be learned by a 10 year olds  The only problem encountered was the finishing of the cow and the calves.  This 10 year old was determined to paint the animals white and green.  She said that they were special breeds from Greenland.  The finish is a wee bit goofy, but the carving is right on..

I didn't know you were doing power carving. After I cut myself several times..I got out my dremal..and made some animals! Now I don't feel like I'm cheating! Are Green cows like Green eggs and ham? :)

Holee, I gave this young lady a bottle of paint and some animal carvings to paint at home. After several weeks I asked her if she painted the animals. She said no, that she had a problem. I said what? She said that she painted her feet instead. So green cows, why not!
