I'll admit that I was a bit apprehensive about getting a tomahawk kit to review. I knew that this would become the prince's project and could only see it as a "weapon". Boy, was I relieved to find that the tomahawk blade would actually be made of leather! 

I thought this was an easy and fun project for K-5th grade students. (I put those ages because I think that an older child would want a real blade on the tomahawk. The Corps of Re-Discovery has those too.) While I needed to help the prince with securing the leather strap that held it all together, he was able to do the rest on his own. It was no time at all before he was attacking the banister rail with the tomahawk! I would have taken pictures of the process, but it was out of the package and together before I thought of it.

Oh, the packaging ... Does anyone like those toys and supplies that you buy at the store that have twist ties everywhere and extra cardboard to make the product stand up for display? I don't! When my children get a new toy, they want to put it into action right away. The folks at Corps of Re-Discovery must have that kind of child too. The packaging is really simple. A plastic bag and a piece of paper. Can you imagine? You just open the package and read the directions. You are done with construction almost as quick.

    Yes, we spend more time Christmas morn dealing with twisty ties and cardboard than the actual toy! Glad your son enjoyed the project-nice review!
