Sandpaper Play


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

Materials

  • Sandpaper
  • Wood scraps
  • Glue (optional)
  • Paint or markers (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.
  3. 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.
