Each month, KLRU identifies a Family Choice program from our schedule that will interest and engage family members, ages 7 and up. Keep updated on the Family Choice program-of-the-month and ways your family can build and extend the program through discussion and activities.

The annual kid’s episode features family-friendly projects that parents and kids can build together! Landscape contractor Roger Cook helps a 12-year-old budding gardener build a raised bed for growing vegetables. In the Ask This Old House loft, general contractor Tom Silva and plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey with the help of several kids, build a miniature indoor golf course. Later, host Kevin O’Connor and a middle school teacher show eager students how to build a model rocket launcher using commonly available household and hardware store items.
