Yet some more Christmas gifts this year. These are shape/color matching games for little nieces and nephews. I tried to cut the shape out of stock, much like a spindle, or a roll of cookies :) And then just “slice” the blocks from the shape. This worked ok, but I learned that next time I will need to make a jig to hold the stock in place. Because any small movement makes the shapes not stack perfectly, and the gap becomes pretty apparent. Anyway, I’m not sure if they liked them or not, I haven’t heard back yet….but I know that my kids sure liked them while they were in the house curing up. LOL.
Fun project for anyone interested though. Not much work at all, and there are so many possibilities with this one. I got the idea form a picture that I saw on the web.
