Great Ideas for Your Little Builder

The best helpers are the little builders in our lives, and your little builder will love tackling their own projects. Choose from DIY birdhouse kits or a greenhouse kit to get your kids creating their own wooden projects.

Yard Dice Game Plan

Materials List:

  • 1-4x4x8 Treated Post
  • Medium Grit Sand Paper
  • White Paint
  • Circular Saw
  • Saw Horse
  • 3 Paints in Assorted Colors
  • 2-inch Foam Paint Brush
  • 1-inch Round Foam Paint Brush

Instructions:

Step 1: Have an adult cut a 4X4 post into 5 cubes. Pro Tip: Treated 4X4 posts are actually 3.5” X 3.5”, so be sure to cut the length to match the height and width.

Step 2: Sand cubes to round edges and smooth surfaces.

Step 3: Use 2-inch paint brush to lightly paint each cube white. Let dry.

Step 4: Sand cubes lightly to create a distressed look.

Step 5: Use round paint brush to paint dots on dice. Let dry.

Step 6: Use sand paper to lightly distress dots.
