Gkid spends Friday night and Saturday with us every week. Last week she saw me coloring with my Uni Posca oil markers, and wanted to do a Glowforge project she could color, so this week I gave her a couple of options, and this is the one she picked.


These are 1.5" wooden blocks I found on She picked out some cute animal SVGs we found on Etsy (she didn’t want to draw her own this time around), and I made a jig and scored the first one for her to paint. After it was painted, we jumbled up the blocks, put them back in the jig in random order with bare sides up, and scored the next animal. She didn’t get that one finished today, so I’ll have to update the thread as we go.

When it’s finished, there will be 6 animal puzzles painted on the various sides of the blocks–6 puzzles in one! :slight_smile:

I thought I was all smart for thinking this up, but now I’m seeing them all over Pinterest. Oh, well.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
