Kids DIY Peace Boxes @ Columbia Gorge Peace Village Camp

This was our first year at Columbia Gorge Peace Village camp and we had a blast! So much amazing energy, talented facilitators and creative youth embodying peace within, peace among and peace around. We decided on a simple carpentry project, a 5 sided peace box, that kids could assemble with hammer and nails and then personalize with paint. Tum-A-Lum Lumber generously donated all of the materials and we were able to serve 75 kids in 4 days!

July Birdhouse Workshops @ Tum-A-Lum Lumber

This month we built birdhouses with kids during our workshops at Tum-A-Lum Lumber in Pendleton and Hood River. All together 40 kids built, stained and took home their own cedar birdhouse! It was our most complex project this year with skill building including layout, measuring, marking, hammering, attaching hooks and chain, and staining with rags. If you were unable to attend the workshop you can download the plans here and build it at home.

Next month we are building toolboxes! You can sign up for the Hood River workshop here and the Pendleton workshop here. Hope to see you soon!
