20+ DIY Wood Projects for Kids

Collage of DIY wood projects for kids

I’ve gotten on a [very beginner] woodworking kick lately, and my favorite topic is DIY wood projects for kids. 

Our At Home DIY Challenge topic for this month was “What can I build with a 2×4?

I made this slow kids wooden yard sign to tell the speeders in our neighborhood to slow the heck down. It would actually make a really cool outdoor chalkboard, too, though…

Anywho, I’ve rounded up my favorite wooden kids’ projects from this month’s challenge and from Pinterest. Happy woodworking, friends!
