Walker, William, and our friend Jeannie set up their lemonade stand. Later in the day, Burke brought the boys to my house for an afternoon of "workshop" fun.
Then I found the hammers and some copper roof flashing. I brought out a bolt from a hardware box. Remember all the high tech specialty tools I use (lol). I had some temporary letter stickers left from a project and cut the copper to a managable size. Put the letter sticker on the copper and even a three year old can understand not to hammer on his letter. Place the bolt - tap with the hammer - repeat. combine with a cheap art board - some scrap book paper and you get this ............
I added a hanger from some webbed binding and the boys took them home for their rooms.
I have to say this was influenced by a board that has been in my Mom's house as long as I can remember. My Uncle made it for my mom with a sanded pine board and he repeatedly hammered into a letter stencil then stained the board with the SCOGIN name on it.
After we finished the letters, we made FIND IT jars. I had baby food jars left, but those tall skinny jars that olives and pickled onions come in work great too.
