TinkeringSiteAnyone with a little hands-on experience around the home can spend time tinkering and even repairing items. While some projects might be best left to professional handyman services, there are plenty of things that a novice can do as well. From fixing appliances to remodeling to even auto repair, tinkering can save money and provide valuable opportunities for learning. Even projects that don’t turn out as intended can be a learning experience.  Tinkering Tinkering is a hands-on form of open-ended exploration to learn about how things work, how to improve them, and how to build new things. Having an area of the home devoted to tinkering can make it more likely that family will spend time exploring and creating. A tinkering area should have a horizontal work space, adequate lighting, and storage to hold equipment and supplies that can be used for tinkering projects, such as hand tools, electrical tape, batteries, rubber bands, straws, craft sticks, paper, card stock, and more. An outdoor tinkering lab is also an option for those who enjoy tinkering. An outdoor lab would be perfect for messy or more involved projects that need extra room. A tinkerer might make a homemade battery, a thermometer, a light, or some other object that can entertain or serve a purpose.
