Spelling Dice Tutorial.....

I have wanted to try making a tutorial for awhile. I thought that I would try a an easy one to start off with. When ever the boys do spelling I try to through a game in every other week to break up the worksheets. This week they are going to play with the Spelling Dice.


I started off getting together my supplies. I got a package of wooden blocks, about 1 inch square. Paint of choice for the blocks. Then some letter stickers. Also mod podge for the finish.

I started of by painting the blocks (Gabe picked out the color). Once that was done drying I put the stickers on it. (oh yeah love the elmo in the background. It is one of the old place mats of the kids. They no longer use them for eating but it makes great area for painting)
Ok, sorry this picture is so blurry. This is the final stage, apply the mod podge. I had to apply several coats of it to get it smooth. I think that was because the brush I used. I am making story dice for Sam and I switched to one of the little foam brushes. It is going on so much easier. Also be aware if you use the mod podge that it takes awhile for it to dry.

Then I finished off the whole project with making this litte bag to store it in. It was a really easy project to make and really cheap to. That is always nice. So what are you waiting for, go ahead and make yourself some.
