i absolutely love these. i'm in the process of making these right now, only for a 2 year old boy. i have batman patches, racecars.. the best thing is that they can grab the blocks and throw them at things and it won't break anything or hurt anyone :)
Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week. A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue. A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain.
