Wooden I-Spy Cubes

Quite some time ago, I bought some wooden stack-able cubes at a garage sale for $2. 

They were a bit tatty so I gave them a fresh coat of paint.  They were looking really good, but a little boring, so I decided to spice them up a bit by making them into i-spy cubes.  Here is how I did it.

First I cut out some images from some scrapbooking paper and adhered them to the cubes:

I chose to make each block a 'theme' but you could choose to fill each cube with random images:

Once you have stuck on all of your images, give the cubes a coat of mod podge:

and wait patiently for them to dry:

"I-spy with my little eye...... an orange brontosaurus..."


and a penguin with a green top hat on":

Hours of fun in these things!
