Ready, Set, Craft! Challenge // Wood

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!

Want to join in next month?  Here’s our craft item for March:
