I'm trying to "get ahead" and make some toys in advance. Even though our little guy can't play with these yet, I'm sure he'll get enjoyment out of them eventually. I picked up a big bag of misc. wooden pieces for free at a thrift store a while back. I also picked up these street sign dominoes. I thought they would be perfect to combine to make street signs.
All I did was cut the dominoes apart, sand the rough edges and then hot glue the pieces together to make signs. Very easy. They came out pretty sturdy and cute, I think.
Cost: $.25 for the street sign dominoes.
