Today, she finished off a wooden toy box out of some leftover plywood. The top makes a seat when down and it's going to double as a chair before the electric piano.
It started as a 2x4 'box', heavy framed (more than actually needed) and then the plywood was nailed to that and smoothed down with Daddy's help and the sander. She did the finishing hand sanding touches. Then, digging through my fabric piles, she picked out a pretty black cotton with little violets and we brushed glue all over it then cloth covered it. A little lacey trim here and there, and it looks pretty cool! I even had a fairly close matching cushion to put ontop.
It's drying now. I figure about 2 days for hard set of the thicker glue around the lace trim.
Anyone got any neat ideas for teaching kids that I might find handy? With supervision of course.
