Budding entrepreneurs do it tweet

A PAIR of fledgling entrepreneurs will sell handmade nesting boxes at the Bambino Bazaar Market Day today.

Lachlan Roughley and Karina Smith, both 10, teamed up to design, build and decorate the bird boxes during outside school hours care at St Mary's Primary School.

They are two of 14 students who took part in the pilot program, and who will join fellow biz-kids to sell their wares at the Ipswich City Mall, from 9am to noon.

"It started out as animal cages, and then Lachlan realised it would take too long to make cages, so we changed to nesting boxes," Karina said.

"We never argued though, Lachlan just did the building and I did the painting, so it all worked well."

Lachlan said his involvement in the Tweet Forever partnership was a new experience. "I'm sort of used to pulling things apart, or just breaking things, so it was a bit of a change," Lachlan said.

The centre was the first to offer Bambino business classes to its attendees.
