When You’ve Got Scraps, Make Blocks!

Building should not require a lot of money. In fact, I try to do my justbuildstuff.com projects without spending any money if possible. I think this is better for both the environment and for my wallet.

A fun example is to save all the little scraps of wood you find when cleaning up your shop floor after a project and use them as building blocks for children. You probably want to sand the pieces to eliminate the possibility of slivers and get rid of the sharp corners. For a little extra pizazz you can also paint and finish the blocks to make them look a little spiffier. They end up being a unique and fun toy that can help to build creativity skills and the all important building skills.
