Can I just say, I am loving this challenge series! It’s forcing me to think outside the box since we’re purposefully picking very generic craft items. These are all items that I have used in previous DIYs so it’s really getting my wheels turning and getting the creative juices flowing!
This month, Emily chose wood. Oh, the possibilities! I have to say that one of my favorite aisles of any craft store is the unfinished wood section. I could stand there and just stare for awhile, coming up with a million ideas on what to do with it all. Something I haven’t really used much, even though I look at them all the time, are the shapes. Small little baggies, hanging on hooks, filled with different shapes in all sizes. Then, when I looked at the circles, I was reminded of a recent play date with our besties when we played a memory game with the kids. Just some small circles with pictures on the back sides and I thought, “Hey! I can make this!” So I did!
What You’ll Need: Wooden Circles (an even amount), stickers, Modge Podge (or other sealant)
If you have a toddler or preschooler, you probably have about a million to a billion, half empty, sticker sheets lying around. If you get lucky however, you may be ale to find enough for this project! I had such luck and they happened to be one of Gav’s favorite things, dinosaurs!
Separate your wood circles into pairs and place a sticker on each. Make sure you only use each picture once per pair.
Brush a layer of Modge Podge over the top, let dry, and you’re ready to play!
Super simple and a great, non screen related activity!
