Dan’s dad is a carpenter. He makes different wooden things in his garage.
Dan likes to watch, how his dad creates windows, doors, shelves, tables and other useful wooden things.
Dan has an incredible idea. He wants to use dad’s hammer and hobnails, but his dad doesn’t give him any tools. Why? He is only five years old!
Today is Sunday. It is the best day for Dan. Every Sunday his dad drives away to buy wood. Dan is alone at home. He goes to the garage and finds the hammer and hobnails.
‘Wow! How many hobnails! They are very big and long,’ says Dan. ‘What can I do? Let me think! I have got an idea,’ thinks Dan.
He takes the hammer and a kilo of hobnails and goes to the garden. He starts to look for something wooden.
‘What about trees?’ he thinks. ‘No, it isn’t a good idea. It isn’t good for trees and dad can see them. Where can I use all these hobnails? Where can’t my dad see them?
What about ground? I don’t damage trees and dad can’t see the hobnails in the ground. Wow! It is a good idea!’ A hundred of hobnail in the ground!
