A table top Carpentry Hand Drill Activity. The children are given a presentation on how to hold and use the drill. Once the presentation has been given the children can then drill holes into a block of wood. These blocks of wood with drill holes can then be used for the Carpentry Hammering or Screwdriver activity. A further extension to this activity is showing the children how to replace the drill bit. The activity comes with the table top work tray, which measures approximately 20cm deep x 30cm wide and has a front and back lip to prevent slipping on the table and to contain the activity, a specially designed drill for children to use which does not have any cogs or gears so no pinched fingers, a tin containing one drill bit, spare drill bits are also given. This activity is one of 4 and is ideally used to introduce a skill prior to using the Carpentry Bench.
