Scrap wood sculptures with the art group

We made wood sculptures with the art group yesterday using frame pieces, popsicle sticks, and some other small scrap wood pieces. The kids glued all these together and to heavy mat board (remnants from the same frame shop). Justin's is above and below — he was really into the project



We used regular all-purpose school glue, both in squeeze bottles and in open dishes with paintbrushes.

His older sister Josie carefully made about 7 or 8 stand-alone mini sculptures and set them along the terrace wall to dry.
Have any of you done this? I think it would be fun to paint them afterwards, although I don't know that we will. It would also be nice to do these on a wooden base (rather than the mat board).
