A few summers ago, I bought all three of my children these wooden puzzles at Michaels. It was summer vacation & i thought it would be fun for them. It didn’t take more than thirty minutes for them to finish. This horse has been sitting in my daughter’s bedroom ever since. I asked her if I could have it. I wanted to use the wood as a base on which to build the form.
I’ve been using plain white tissue paper & Mod Podge to give the wooden horse a real life look. It is an easy project to leave out & then work on it for an hour or so at a time. Mod Podge dries very hard for which to continue to build on.
These puzzles cost $1.00 or so. The puzzles come flat & need to pushed apart. They come in all sorts of animals & other objects. A great project that costs almost nothing but time. I have a wonderful poem about ‘the horse’ that I am going to type up as a funky graphic design project. I will make several copies of the poem to use as the final application to its form.
