I love this learning numbers game and DIY project by Mae Armstrong. She is always doing something truly awesome for her kids. This project is a perfect way for kids to understand numbers as values and associate them with the digit.
First Mae started with a 2"x4" wood scrap.
Plan your number spacing before stamping. If you want to be absolutely sure
you can measure the space in between and mark them with a pencil.
After stamping mark the holes for the pegs and drill the appropriate number
of holes. After drilling use a sanding block and smooth out the surface of the
Use a fine sanding paper.
Feel the surface to make sure there are no rough spots. Then use a Crystal
Clear Acrylic spray to seal to protect the wood and also the stamped surface. This is one of Mae's strengths. She really goes above and beyond to make it a complete project. (I would have skipped the spray!)
Mae picked up package of wooden golf tees at Walmart.
Here's my son concentrating on placing the right number of pegs.
I just love this project. Hope you enjoy it too!
