Sand Paper Playtime

ages 3-6


Sandpaper, wood scraps, glue (optional), paint or markers (optional)

Activity Detail

Give your child a piece of sandpaper and some small wood scraps. Show her how to sand the wood, and talk about the difference between rough and well-sanded wood textures. For a more advanced activity, sanded scraps of wood can be glued together to create wood sculptures and painted or decorated with markers. To avoid splinters, you may want your child to wear gloves for this activity.

Sanding the wood and then making something out of the wood with paint and glue sounds like a lot of fun for children. Building their own project from scratch is a great idea.
