Carving and crafting is child’s play with Terra Kids

Fascinated with carving? Definitely! To carve, you need a knife with a sharp metal blade – this alone makes it appealing to children, because they feel proud that they are being trusted to take on such a grown-up responsibility. With the Terra Kids carving products, children get the right tools for their little hands, can work in almost the same way as their grown-up role models and get the feeling that adults trust them and take them seriously. This is precisely why it makes sense for children to learn and practice carving and crafting.

Rules, careful instruction and occasional monitoring by adults are naturally important. Then children can let their creativity and imagination run wild when carving – and be justifiably proud of what they achieve. For these reasons we can confidently say that children carving is no problem! We have great wood crafting ideas for you.
