Please join Houston Center for Contemporary Craft for Hands-On Houston, a free, craft-activity open house on the first Saturday of every month. “Wood” you like to assemble and decorate your very own handmade wooden toy car? Well, here’s your chance! The members of the Woodworkers Club of Houstonhave been busy tracing a car pattern on wood, cutting it out with a band saw, drilling holes for the windows and wheel axels, routing, and sanding it on a belt sander. Whew, that’s a lot of work, and that’s just one car! They are making 150 toy cars for Hands-On Houston, and here is where you come in! Using a jig to hold the car in place, you’ll attach the wheels to the car and decorate it using race-car decals and colored sharpies. This activity is for children only: ages 3 to 13. (Toys will not be given out to adults for children who are not present.) Materials have been graciously donated by the Woodworkers Club of Houston.

The Toy Project

The Woodworkers Club of Houston is comprised of 200 members who make and donate about 5,000 toys annually to different charities around Houston and have been doing so for the past 6 years. Learn more at www.wwch.org.
