Blocks painting Party

I received a request for a number of 1.75” cubic blocks a few years ago.  The person wanted enough blocks for each person attending a Baby Shower she was having.  There was no problem supplying her with the blocks.  After answering a few questions about paintability, she told me she was having each person at the party decorate 1 block, which would be given to the mother-to-be. 

The blocks could be used in the baby’s room as décor.  For this any paint could be used since the child wouldn’t be playing with them. 

My Grandfather made blocks that are almost 60 years old now, and the only wear is on the edges.  These blocks have been used by 3 generations.
