My boys and I are addicted to Team Umizoomi and this project really inspired me of a creative way to work on our number skills.
I started with a 2"x4" wood scrap. I actually got this from a neighbor and thought this would be perfect for my project.
Plan your number spacing before stamping. If you want to be absolutely sure you can measure the space in between and mark them with a pencil. I just eye balled mine. It's not perfect but you can't really tell right. I was just too excited to get this one done so we can put it in good use.
After stamping mark the holes for the pegs and drill the appropriate number of holes. After drilling use a sanding block and smooth out the surface of the wood.
Use a fine sanding paper.
Feel the surface to make sure there are no rough spots. Then use a Crystal Clear Acrylic spray to seal to protect the wood and also the stamped surface.
I picked up a package of wooden golf tees at Walmart. Found some natural tees that match my peg board perfectly. The tees came with this awesome bag - it was a great deal all in all.
Here's my son concentrating on placing the right number of pegs.
I just love this project. Hope you enjoy it too!
