tiles for kids

Oh my! I just had to share these adorable animal tiles that Merrilee made. She used hard wood and craft acrylic paint to make these adorable mix n’ match animal tiles for her little boys.

On Easter morning, she had them laid out as a surprise, and as you can guess, they were delighted. I’m sure my own kids would love mixing around these tiles but I might have to brush up on my painting skills before I give them a shot. : )

    These are gorgeous! Making toys for your kids is so much more special than running to the store for something plastic. These wooden pieces will last much longer, and mean so much more because they were handmade by a loved one. I can see these being kept and passed on for years.

    This project is also fun to do with decoupage. You can use paper dolls or photos of friends and family. Simply take the photos standing in front of the same background. You can always adjust the sizing some in photoshop to give a bit of uniformity. Tons of fun!
