Painting and Making Homemade Wooden Toys and Animals

With all of the crazy snow last month and no school,
we've spent A LOT of time in the art studio.

The girls and I have been painting (with watercolor and decorating with sharpies)
little wooden friends for our block center.



Bears that "C" insists are Bunnies.

More Cats. Houses. Little Friends.

I got out my wood burning tool to add a few eyes, smiles, and paw prints.

Painting on snow days is best done in PJs after breakfast.

Some of our new wooden friends.

We sealed them with beeswax, rubbed off the excess with a soft cloth
and got to work playing with them with our blocks.

I used Three BEEautiful Bees All Natural Beeswax Wood Polish

I ordered my wooden shapes from Casey's Wood Products.
We used the
Happy Crafting!

I can't believe you are still snowed in (as you may realize I have no idea about snow or what it is likely to do or not). Anyways it seems that your kids are probably quite happy to be off school with everything going on at your place!
