Combining inventive and creative elements comes these plywood animal kits made in Melbourne. The kits come flat packed and would be a fantastic activity to do as a family. I could imagine us all sitting down at the dining table, each making our own little wooden creation with the octupus, moose and squirrel. The benefits are quality family time and kids feeling the joy and confidence of making something themselves.
Once made, there are numerous uses: a bookend, a centrepiece on the mantel or a show-and-tell item (look what I made!). They can also be painted to add more fun to the activity – how about a red squirrel and yellow moose? Best of all, the animals are easy to store as they can be simply taken apart and laid flat.
Available to buy from Etsy shop In the Woods for US$36 plus postage.
