Growing up, my favorite blocks to play with were quite simple. They were painted cubes and my mother drew windows and door on small stickers. I loved them dearly and know I would have enjoyed making a set of my own. Check out these handmade city blocks that any kid can take a stab at!

Sara ofCreative Jewish Mom is back at it again, this time with a sweet cityscape project that's sure to entertain your kids for years to come. Using scrap lumber, she did a few quick drawings and then turned them over to her 7 year old to paint. He wasn't so much into the drawing part, but spent an afternoon coloring things in. Adapt the project to what entertains your own children, try glitter glue or even gluing on small scraps of fabric to make curtains over the windows!

If you're looking for something for slightly smaller children (that might end up using them as a chew toy) we suggest wood burning and sealing with linseed oil or a nice natural wax that will keep them clean and easily washable, without the worry of ingesting paint. Check out all the details over at Creative Jewish Mom!
