PRLog - Dec. 10, 2010 - ATLANTA -- Shop classes have virtually disappeared from American high schools and elementary schools as emphasis has shifted to computer labs and away from traditional school shop programs.

Concerned that this shift may cause interest to decline in traditional American crafts such as woodworking as the baby-boom generation passes on, Highland Woodworking in Atlanta has created a "Kid's Woodworking Tool Kit" designed especially for children ages 7 to 12.  Available to parents and grandparents who want their offspring to have an opportunity to experience the joys of building something with their own hands, the tool kits have become a big hit this Christmas holiday season.

The woodworking tools in the tool kit are real tools, not toys. They were chosen for the kid's tool kit because they fit small hands, are ready to use right out of the box without the need to sharpen and adjust, and are easy to use even for beginners. Their exceptional quality makes the tool kit useful not only for kids but for a beginning woodworker of any age.

Besides the saw, hammer, drill, square, tape rule, hand plane, safety glasses, glue, sandpaper and portable bench vise, the child's tool kit includes two excellent instructional books that detail dozens of easy woodworking projects that kids can complete in a short time.

Highland Woodworking owner Chris Bagby explained "This is an opportunity for parents to offer their kids creative challenges that can help build self-esteem as well as hand-eye coordination and problem-solving skills, and are a much better use of their time than playing video games or chatting on the Internet."

He went on to say "The Kid's Woodworking Tool Kit is also a great way for parents to spend quality time interacting with their children, building lasting memories together, and helping the child start a useful hobby that can last a lifetime."

Highland's Woodworking Tool Kit for Kids is available for $99.99 at their Atlanta, GA retail store, and online via their website at www.highlandwoodworking.com/kids.aspx  or by phone at 800-241-6748.
