Cardboard tube animals
Easy reference for drawing stick animals...
Skateboard as a Shelf: Purchase a pair of L-brackets (available at hardware stores) that are a little more than half as long as the skateboard's width. Screw the brackets into two studs in a wall, 16 inches apart. Remove the trucks and the wheels from the skateboard . . . or leave them on if they aren't grungy so they will hide the supports. Screw the board to the brackets and you're in business! This would work well if placed lower on the wall just over a desk to hold homework supplies.
Can imagine letting kids draw on fabric then sewing into stuffed figures.
