Mobile Shed visits NAIDOC week at Gosford Showground

Darren was hard at work making up the tissue box projects with the kids and parents at the Naidoc celebration.

The kids had a relentless interest in what the project was, how to do it and then how to decorate it aferwards. A very successfuld day ....

There were three tables with four construction stations on each. The clamps hammers and cups of nails were in high demand all day.

Kids employed the assistance of dad and brothers, grandads and uncles along with mums and sisters to assemble their "tissue box projects". Some of the more skilled kids just started helping others to clamp and hammer their boxes ... a great collaborative community effort !!!

One of the tissue box projects decorated on the day with whatever was to hand.

There were some very well made boxes and well decorated on the day.
