Cedar Building Blocks
Two awesome boys recently had their birthdays, and seeing as how they are lego and Kapla block masters, I wanted to make them each a little building block set.
Each set has 48 cedar blocks, all with a 1 inch width, that my dad cut for me from leftovers. There are squares, rectangles (two sizes) and triangles which I painted on two sides and then finished off with some spray acrylic sealer.
Of course I had fun playing with them!
I really like the contrast of the natural wood and paint, and am thinking of other projects that I can experiment with the combination.
Painting these blocks was really fun because the cedar smelled so good!! I also think that using cedar made for some unique light-weight blocks. Hopefully they'll have as much fun playing with them as I did!
