Unplugged Challenge: Tiny

The theme of this week's Unplugged Challenge on Unplug Your Kids is "tiny", so Blaze and I made things for his bendy dolls. He built a log cabin out of his set of Lincoln Logs and I made a picnic set out of wooden dowels and wooden balls.

The cups are made from a 5/8 of an inch oak dowel, cut into 3/4 of an inch sections and then drilled part way through . The cup handles are made by drilling a hole in the center of the dowel and then cutting off slices. I then sanded off one side until it was the proper shape and glued the handle onto the cup with strong glue.

The submarine sandwich is made from the same oak dowel, cut length-wise. The sandwich filling is round and triangular shapes cut out of wool felt. Then it was all glued together.

Beautiful! I'm amazed at your talent. The log cabin as well -- I'm still trying to figure out the how-to's of Lincoln Logs!

Hi, I came to your blog via "Unplug your kids". Those tiny picnic items are gorgeous! I did a double take when I read that you made them. You are really clever.

VERY nice, Crescent Moon.

Side note: I've got all your posts bookmarked to read when I get home, but I actually have a minute to use my dad's laptop. I'm going to try and catch up quickly, but I might not get to read all of them until this weekend.

I was needing my Crescent Moon fix, lol.....

I love all of your bendy doll posts! Those cups are genius. My daughter and I have been building a doll city out of boxes from the liquer store, and we have been looking for little things to make for the tiny dolls. Those cups will be perfect.

Be very careful when making these with children. The reason I made these without my son's help is because I figured the tiny size of the dishes made it more likely someone would get hurt cutting them or drilling them.
