How to Make Your Own Wooden Block DollsGrab your Wooden Blocks, Sharpies, circle stickers, and Washi Tape. Then, have a ball creating different characters and objects.
- We used old blocks, so I didn't mind doodling on them with Sharpie. If that's a problem for you, be sure to tell your kids to just draw on the stickers.
- Our characters are meant to be temporary. But if you want to keep your characters looking good for longer, then just wrap the blocks with packing tape. That should keep the stickers on for awhile.
