Every time I wander through the craft store, I always ponder uses for all of the pre-cut wooden shapes.  Here’s one that I never thought of:  Jamie from C.R.A.F.T. (Creating Really Awesome Free Things), inspired by her brother’s love of Rubik’s cubes, made him a wooden cube puzzle as a gift.  It’s such a fun idea, and it’s great for puzzle lovers of all ages!  Made by carefully arranging and gluing 27 little wooden cubes, it’s a challenge that will really get your brain moving.  Jamie’s wooden cubes came in packages of 72, so you can make a couple of puzzle cubes out of the supplies you’ll need to gather up.  [how to make a wooden cube puzzle]

Project estimate:

  • Wooden cubes, about $3
  • Glue, on hand
  • Cotton swabs, on hand
  • Paint, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  about $3 and up
