Inspire children as they engage in designing and building construction challenges with this Set of Dowling. Woodwork is a key activity that supports the development of fine and gross motor skills as children learn how to safely handle and control tools and equipment.



Provide a variety of building resources and materials in the woodwork provision to motivate innovative designs and support critical thinking. This Set of Dowling features wooden dowling in assorted sizes and when used with our Set of Wheels, children can create cogs and stabilizers for their imagined vehicles – an ideal open-ended set to inspire young designers in the making!

Working with real tools and materials is highly motivating and one challenge that all children are keen to experience as they use this Set of Dowling. When working with wood‚ whether hammering nails or building a vehicle‚ children persevere through the physical and creative challenges they encounter.

Ensure your woodwork area offers lots of opportunities for creative expression and problem solving. Offering a good range of craft materials and real life tools in the woodwork provision will inspire young minds as they problem solve and critically think when designing and making models.

This Set of Dowling includes:

  • Set of wooden Dowel Rods featuring 40 pcs approx. 10cm, 20 pcs approx. 20cm and 20 pcs approx. 25cm, 8mm dia
  • Suitable for age 3 and over

Please Note: When providing this opportunity schools and settings MUST carefully assess children’s levels of competence and independence and judge the level of supervision that is required of children before any tools are made available to them. Make sure to introduce the woodwork resource collection carefully, setting high expectations for their use. It will be important to show children how to handle and use each tool safely so they can manage equipment independently. Once children are off to a good start, with on-going support and guidance, they will soon be able to use all the woodwork resource tools and equipment well.

Many of our resources are produced in a variety of colours and styles and may vary slightly from those shown, however we guarantee that you will always receive the same quality and value.
