Feedback from our customers

The kids absolutely loved the DIY woodwork tool boxes, in fact, once they finished them they requested to do it again!

YMCA Miami, QLD

Staff mentioned how easy and straightforward the DIY woodwork slide box was to facilitate, kids loved it & parents said what a great keepsake project the kids built!

PCYC Bayside, QLD

We made the Twin Candle Making Set, the instructions were easy to understand for staff members to facilitate, safe & fun for the kids & parents were impressed.

A Club for Kids, WA

We ordered the Sunflower Planting Kit, which kept the students engaged for the day. Our gardening themed day was a total hit, and we were lucky to have great weather, so we could make it an outdoor activity.

Meadows PS OSHC, SA

Everything about the DIY woodwork projects was amazing, the instructions were easy to follow it was packed beautifully, everything we needed was available, loved the little packed glue as it was enough & compact without the kids wasting it. We did groups of 12 like suggested and it ran smoothly. We gained two activities with not only building the woodwork, we setup a decorating table for the creative kids. Can’t wait to do another DIY project with the kids.

Mt Kuring-gai OOSH, NSW

The kids and educators loved the trinket boxes. We have tried other woodworking kits in the past and most have been poorly cut/don't fit together well. However, I didn't have any complaints from educators about this. I also had some parents getting in touch to say how much their children loved their boxes.
