    In this thesis I wanted to introduce and approach suitable technical and creative wooden profile products to a selected group of children. With each child I wanted to create joy for technical creation through activities with wooden profiles, familiarization with the material, exploring the possibilities of usage and production procedures of various technical and creative products. Through these products the children also gained new enjoyable technical experiences. In the first part of the thesis I wrote down the features of technology for preschool children, its relation to other fields and described the chosen strategy of educational work. I proceeded with exploring the creativity of a child and encouragement to technical creativity. To create a good practical part of the thesis, I researched development characteristics in a selected group of children. With preparation of the educational part, I emphasize the teacher's planning, objectives, safe work and tools. Among general materials I focused on the wood, as it is the main material in making creative-technical products, and listed features of other materials, which we also used in the activities. In the empirical, the results of the questionnaire with which I wanted to gather as much information as possible about how and how much the children are encouraged to be technically creative and whether they use wooden profiles in the process. I have found that practical work with different types of wood, which best stimulates the child's technical creativity, is used only up to five times per month, with little use of wooden profiles. For this purpose, creative and technical products from wooden profiles were designed. Child activities are shown during practical exercises in the kindergarten, in which I analyzed autonomy and the time needed for each product. With each new product the children were more independent in production. The time spent by children for the production of a particular product, on average corresponded to the originally set time. In the end, I analyzed the set goals and hypotheses and wrote down the evaluation of the entire creative technical work. In the end, I analyzed the set goals and hypotheses and recorded the evaluation of the entire creative technical work.
