DIY Wood Blocks

I love doing projects.  I really enjoy being busy and building stuff out of wood!  So when my daughters teacher asked if anyone would make blocks for the classroom, I jumped at the chance.  She just wanted simple blocks so the builders in her class would have fun.  I had a bunch of scrap wood, so I invited my husband to spend sometime in our wood shop/garage with me.  We cut big and small blocks.  Then I had fun with the miter saw doing triangles.  We sanded the corners and sides with the belt sander and that was it.  Pretty simple to make and only took about two hours or so to make a whole box of them.

 This is how I relax after a long day in the NICU.

Some of my scrap wood I used.

After making a box for my eldest, my little one wanted blocks for her class to play with.  So we made another box of blocks.  These would be fun to have the kids paint them too!
