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
  • Saw
  • Sandpaper
  • Power drill
  • 1/4-inch drill bit
  • Tape measure
  • Wood glue
  • Cardboard
  • Blunt scissors
  • Markers
  • 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.
