Handmade Step Stools and Eco Kids

Stools are in high demand in this house.  If you aren't the one standing on it when it's hand-washing time, you wish you were.  (Well, if you're short that is!)  The girls were thrilled to receive their own daddy-made stools under the Christmas tree this year, and there is no longer any squabbling over who gets to stand on the stool.

I suggested the project, and my husband used this site for inspiration.  He altered the designs though because I asked for a design that would not tip easily. The wood was scraps that we had from other projects. They still need painted, but for now, we love them! 

Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway this week:


Last week was our biggest week yet at Eco Kids.  We had 42 entries!  Thank you all for making this a huge success, and I'm excited for an even bigger week this week.  I want to share some of my favorite nature and science activities from last week:
