Warrnambool Triton Woodworkers usually spend the school holidays in Flagstaff Hill guiding children through making models.
The group prepares up to 1500 kits for children for the two-week school holiday period but amid the coronavirus pandemic, this season's workshops have been cancelled as the tourism hotspot remains closed.
Triton Woodworkers president Len Byron was hopeful the program could return in the September school holidays.
"Our members go down to Flagstaff Hill from 10am-3pm every day of the school holidays," he said.
"We provide the pieces, nails and hammer for the model. The kids come in and put it all together under our direction and walk away with a big smile on their faces.
"We went through 1,200 kits last September with the kids and some of them have never seen a hammer before they come in.
"The program helps us pay the rent of the shed but we've been able to pick up a bit of work with the kindergartens as well, fixing their toys and maintenance instead."
The 35 members meet every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at their shed and have been making toys for Fun4Kids for the past 18 years.
Their recent work with kindergartens have involved building climbing blocks for the youngsters.
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, the group has been able to meet, following the restrictions, with many taking the opportunity to work on their own projects.
"We hope to be back at Flagstaff Hill in the September holidays," Mr Byron said.
