What are these for?


I found a big bag of wooden bricks in a charity shop last week and knew immediately what I wanted the one inch cubes for - but I don't yet have a purpose for all 4 (!) let alone the other shapes...what would you do with them if you were me?

LOL and yes, I've already played sorting and building!

These look very familiar, I'll be interested to see what you do with them! I took mine to the charity shop...

Hmm...those cylindrical ones...caber-tossing meerkat?

Paint and distress them, paint a letter on each, LOVE or CHRISTMAS or CAKE anything!!

oooh I like these ideas! The first of the cubes has already started work as a seat for my cellist meerkats, but there are plenty more.

Awww. We still love our bricks here and my children are 7 and 14! I also keep a stash at the studio for little ones during Open Studios in the Spring.
Something I would do would be to stick string patterns on one end and use them for printmaking. Or cutting shapes from funky foam and sticking that onto one end of a brick for printing. I like Blondesigns idea though!

String them together with little eyebolts and make a mobile.
