Craft Classes: Tree Blocks!

With the simplest of raw materials (wood, beeswax, olive oil, and cotton) you can create a set of tree blocks that are sure to outlast any toy you pick up at the nearest big-box store.

Just saw wood of varying diameters into rounds, and sand the ends and edges, as well as any loose/rough bark.


Slather with a generous coat of beeswax polish, and let sit for at least a few hours.



Buff to a sheen, then store in a lovely drawstring bag. You can personalise it with fabric paint and a potato stamp!

Imagine the delight of small hands opening this beautiful gift...and how clever you'll feel at your creativity, thrift, and eco-friendliness!
