However, being a woodcarver, as they were playing outside
Grandpa walks to the school bus stop 3 days a week
to meet the 2 younger grandchildren on the bus.
They bring home pine cones, flowers and anything else
that they find on their walk to Grandpa and Grandma's.
Jared found a box cutting blade - rusted - not worth anything.
He was so excited that he had his own woodcarving knife.
And, of course, Grandpa to the Rescue!
Grandpa cleaned up the blade,
filed the sharp edge off
and . . . . .
made a handle for Jared's first woodcarving knife -
after all, he found the blade for it.
(After all, the grandchildren do NOT get to spend time in
All of a sudden . . . .
Grandpa had to give full instructions about holding the
knife and holding the soap. What a little listener! 4
3"Yippee! It is my turn."
Grandpa was making sure the knife was held correctly
and with his left thumb in place, he was ready to begin with the carving.
Careful attention from Grandpa and . . . Yes, Jared was
pushing the blade of the knife correctly with his left
thumb. Great job! 4
The other grandchildren had to try this too.
Jacey, Joshua and Jacob are now carving
What a fun time! Bars of soap!
The home made carving knife.
And yes - table knives.
Table knives carve soap also.
The finished carving with their soap???
One resembled a gun, the others were blobs with the edges carved off - but they each have taken a bath with their carving the past couple of nights.
Great soap for baths!
