Be Blocks

This was a craft for the 12-13 year olds. We came up with this.

Start with the blocks — I used 2×4’s. They are inexpensive and easy to come by. A full 8 foot board will run you just $2-$3. Cut them into squares/cubes. (A 2×4 is actually 1.5″ x 3.5″ — keep that in mind).

Print out the labels (attached at the bottom of this post) and cut them out.

Use ModPodge to glue them to the boards. You can paint the boards beforehand if you want, but in this case, we decided to go with the natural look.

The finished product. Do two coats of ModPodge for best results, then spray with a clear sealant. Don’t worry, the white streaks you see are me being too antsy to get the pictures taken and up, ModPodge dries clear.

The pdf has enough labels for 14 blocks — 6 pages total, each page with a separate attribute
