  • 3 little critters

    Here are 3 animals I made for a 1 year old girl. With these critters she can learn the names of the animals and the colors of them while playing. She starts babbling already, so they are just in time.

    All animals are 28 mm thick, around 12 cm long and made from beech. The patterns come from the book Scroll Saw Puzzle Patterns from Patrick and Patricia Spielman.

    Very nice gift for a toddler and nice choice of colors. If you print out the names in red capitals and then use mod-podge to decoupage them to the side of the animal, it will add to the learning process. That's what I did for my granddaughter for her 1st birthday.

    A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

      The alphabet and numbers could be cut out, too, and all kinds of animals. There's no limit what you could create for learning opportunities for little ones.
      Kids learn very quickly if given the tools to do it with and someone spend a little time with them.
      When I was 5 and 6 years old we didn't have kindergarten, back in that day.
      I started 1st grade knowing nothing. Absolutely nothing.
      I didn't know my colors, how to count, ABC's.
      My family didn't try to teach me anything. I had to learn all that in 1st grade.
      But today kids can have all that down pat way before 1st grade.

          I got my notice and and I paid for another year. This year I had to make the following change.

          Fix a 10 year old bug that didn't allow Scrollmania to move to different machines.

          Hi Tony - I built a wedgie sledge pretty much immediately after you first mentioned it. It worked fine within the capabilities of my homebuilt table saw but I quickly realized that to get the best out of it I needed a new saw, hence my recent acquisition.

          The videos are also on Jerry Bennet's...

          Hi planeur - thanks for the reply.

          Just to be clear. I wasn't suggesting that you change your original sheriff, rather that you apply some of the ideas for future projects. Nevertheless you can see the difference in the modified version

          I can definitely see in your Heron that...

          Still no news as to when elderly folk will get their shots here in Mexico. I tuned in to the Monday morning government bulletin this morning only to find out that the Health Secretary who normally gives these bulletins was absent. He was admitted...
