Teach your child about sculpture by letting him create art out of wood scraps.

Materials

  • Sandpaper
  • Wood scraps
  • Glue (optional)

Directions

  1. Give your child a piece of sandpaper and some small wood scraps.
  2. Show her how to sand the wood, and talk about the difference between rough and well-sanded textures.
