Tama County Creates: FREE “build your own present” workshop this weekend

Does Grandpa have enough bird houses on the farm?  Would Grandma appreciate a bird house outside her window?  How about your own yard? Get your kids involved in the season by letting them build their own gift.

The construction technology department of Iowa Valley Community College is holding the 6th Annual “build a birdhouse” event this weekend.  It allows kids ages 5-12 (might make exceptions for 1 over or under) to build a project with hammer and nails. They will pre-cut the parts and pre-drill the holes  so the nails go in pretty easy. This year’s project is a wren house. There will also be punch, coffee and cookies with a couple of Christmas videos showing in the classrooms.  A few construction tech students will be assisting the kids as well as the parents.

Sat, December 4, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
(One hour sign up periods of 9-10 a.m., 10-11 a.m., or 11-12 p.m.)
Marshalltown Community College Campus
Construction Technology Building (located on the northeast corner of the campus )
3700 S. Center Street

Please reserve your time slot. Call Renaie Hutzel 641-752-7106 or 641-844-5757 and mention the birdhouse event.
There is no cost for this workshop.
