With a Do-it-Yourself Wooden Rocking Horse kit, you can have that rocking horse for your child or grandchild and save some money over buying one, and customizing it for the child.
First, you will need the following tools for one kit that found online by doing a simple search:
- Electric Drill
- 5/32 drill bit
- Phillips screwdriver bit
- Staple gun (arrow GT21 Style)
- Hot glue gun
After following the PDF, or hard copy assembly instructions, you can put the kit together saving some money over purchasing one already built, painted, or stained. When you purchase an unfinished kit, you can paint it or stain it the way you wish, personalizing it for your child or grandchild. Imagine the gleam in the child’s eyes when they see their new Wooden Rocking Horse, and your pride, knowing that you were able to give something of yourself by building and finishing this special project for the child in your life. There isn’t a greater feeling; the rocking horse is appreciated more by the child, and possibly kept to pass down, or kept as a special memento to remind the family of the builder, and holding a special place in their life for years to come saying, “Dad or granddad built this for me when I was your age.” There is something special in this simple statement.
You can always just go to a store and purchase one, but think of the pride you will feel by building a wooden rocking horse for your child or grandchild, and the special look in their eyes when you give it to them. This will create a special bond between the builder and the recipient for many years.
You can build the wooden rocking horse with the help of the child. Imagine the bonding with the child as they help by handing the builder parts as the rocking horse is painted or stained, then assembled together. Nothing compares to the feeling of bonding with a child, and the stories the child will tell to friends and family about building the rocking horse with you. The rocking horse will hold a special place in the heart of the child as they grow to an adult because of the special time spent assembling this project with you.
By shopping around, purchasing unfinished furniture or wood projects, it is possible to save money on your next project. Doing a bit of homework can save you more money than you might think. A few hours of time to save money, sounds like a good proposition to many people.
