- Unfinished Wood Blocks
- Craft paints in the color of your choice
- Paint brush
- Circle template
Start with your set of blocks together and draw on your shape. I used a circle template for the circles. I used just a pencil and rules for the square and triangle.
Paint inside or outside of your shape with craft paint. It may require a few coats with the paint. I left the unpainted surface natural but you could definitely use a contrasting paint in this area if you wish.
Allow the paint to dry completely. Then turn all of the blocks over and repeat the steps on the next side.
Continue for all six sides. The longest part of this project is waiting for paint to dry.
You can pick the shapes and colors that will work for you. I chose to go very basic but you could use this method with any image.
Wrap up the set and watch the smile on the little ones face as he or she puts together puzzles on each side of these fun blocks.
To make this gift last as long as possible, you can also follow up with a couple of coats of spray sealer after the paint has dried.
Add this wood blocks puzzle to your must make list this holiday season. It makes a quick, easy, and inexpensive handmade gift idea. Now that is my kind of gift!
