These traffic signs are fun art crafts to make for toy cars. They're also a great way to teach kids all their road signs.
What You'll Need:
- Five 1x2-inch boards
- Five 1/4-inch wood dowels
- Power drill
- 1/4-inch drill bit
- Tape measure
- Wood glue
- Blunt scissors
- Transparent tape
How to Make Traffic Signs:
An adult should help kids saw and drill all the wood pieces. Make sure you sand the wood smooth.
Step 1: Saw the 1x2-inch boards into 2-inch pieces for the base of the signs. Drill a 1/4-inch hole in the center of each wood base.
Step 2: Saw the dowels into 4-inch pieces for the sign posts. Glue each dowel into a base.
Step 3: To make a sign, cut a 4x1-1/2-inch piece from the cardboard. Fold it in half and draw a traffic sign on both sides. Tape the sides closed to make a pocket. Slip it over a dowel sign post.
Step 4: Repeat to make 4 more signs. For instance, you could make a stop sign, yield sign, traffic signal, railroad crossing, or a walk/don't walk sign.
