EASY WOOD SCULPTURES FOR KIDS

We love buying ourselves a box o’ wood bits—something we’ve done a few times over the years—and turning them into wood sculptures, toys, and 3-D collages.
This time Daphne and Emily (ages 5 and 6) made wood sculptures and Maia (age 9) create dolls/people. If your kids are into wood, working 3-D, or if they haven’t done something like this yet, give this a try. Here are some simple instructions and tips…

Step 1: ​EASY WOOD SCULPTURES FOR KIDS

MATERIALS

Wood pieces*Wood glue (best) or white school glue (okay)Sturdy cardboard, matboard, or a flat wood piece for a basePaint (optional)Sharpie markers (optional)

1. Glue wood pieces to the base as desired. Let dry.

2. Paint. Let dry.
3. Add detail with Sharpies if desired. Dots, stripes, faces, abstract designs, anything that suits your fancy. The kids can take this wood sculpture idea any direction they like, by the way.

Maia created a number of small wooden figurines or dolls from the wood pieces.

Daphne towered as many wood bits as she could into a vertical sculpture.

Special thanks to my Certificate 3 in Childcare for these children arts and crafts activities and training.
