Another great idea that uses photos to tackle both decoration and education: blocks with family photos in matching paper to help your little ones get to know family that they don't see often.
We've heard of cutting out photos and putting them on popsicle sticks, but this project would certainly be much prettier to have around. Erin of Lemon Tree Creations used the same paper for each nuclear family to teach her son about their family. The scrapbook paper and photos were Mod Podged on and the blocks were sanded down to create the weathered look.
We're pretty sure any child would enjoy playing with blocks with their own family members on them. Check out Erin's post for more photos.
