There's something really special about drawing on wood, and there are so many things you could make with them!
These wood slices are wonderfully smooth and ready for you to get creative with. Your wood slices will arrive blank, but for these examples we used paint pens, which work so well on this texture and give a bright finish. You could also use regular pens and sharpies, although the depth of colour isn't a good as paint pens.
Each pack contains 20 blank wood slices inside a calico cotton bag. The sizes include:
- 8 small slices
- 6 medium slices
- 4 large slices
- 2 large slices with holes
The wood is sustainably sourced from invasive pine trees that are growing in native bushland reserves, as well as fallen trees. The timber is then sliced using high quality machinery to create a smooth finish and retain the natural bark finish around the outside.
Please see our book Your Wild Child for ideas on how to use the wood slices - Earth Jewellery, Monkey Drum and Wind Catcher. They also make wonderful Christmas tree decorations and name tags for presents.
Some irregularities in size and shape will occur due to the nature of the product. This is what makes them beautiful and unique!
Only two slices have holes in them. If you'd like to have holes in more of the slices, you can do so using an electric or handheld drill and timber drill bit. Please ensure the hole will be minimum 5mm from the edge of the wood, or further if possible to ensure strength. You can also drill a hole through the middle of the slice and use multiple times over for threading activities for children.
Please note that due to small parts and the tendency for young children to put things in their mouths, we do not recommend the small wood slices for children under 3 years.
