DMan wanted to practice before we did this skill. First he drew on the piece of board at Pumpkin from the book Draw Write Now. 

Then he took his wood burner and burned the design of the pumpkin. Be careful, the tip is very HOT. Even the handle gets warm. 

Finally he painted it, and then he gave it to his sister. 

It came out nice. 

This was the day, we did wood burning with our group. I bought a kit at Michael's. I found that kit was better because the boards were thinner and easier to burn. 

Even girls can do this skill. Of course she did flowers. 

They had tracing paper with the kit and then you follow the design for burn. 
These would be nice for Christmas or for any gift.

I always enjoyed doing this back in my elementary school years!! I can still remember how the wood felt under the burning pen (thingy). Your boy did such a great job! :D

Those are really neat. I agree that they'd make an awesome gift. That's a great activity for older kids.
