But, remember one thing if you paint it use non-toxic paints.
It’s time to train your kid about the safety measures. You can’t lock them out or hide your tools. Kids are inquisitive and in no time will find a way to get in, so the safest way to take them is with confidence. It’s now time to scale up. Do you think it is possible to build storage shed? He will love to, so start with a sketch add detail(or get your shedplans online) and don’t make it big.
Build slowly, train him how to make different joints and fix them. And don’t allow him inside without his safety gear and you must do the same. He must understand it’s not his profession, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.
You have trained your kid and learned a few lessons by this time. Small size storage shed for your kid is complete, and now move on to a big project. You already have your how to build a wooden shed guide book so move on. If you want to make it big, you must know masonry work. But, it’s better to scale up gradually.

Anchor it firmly in multiple points. Add a burglary alarm for security, paint it with non-toxic paint and enjoy the fun.
