  • 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.

      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.

          Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

          What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

          And now for the questions

          I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

          Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

          BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
