Simple Homemade Baby Toys

1 Comment

Simple home made shakers using pasta and craft supplies and cheap plastic containers are perfect to keep things interesting for the little monkey!
To make these, all I did was take some clear plastic screw top containers purchased at a $2 shop and filled them with different sounding objects.
In this picture, the first contains some metallic bells, the second contains some puff pom poms and sequins for a very small soft sound and the third contains an assortment of macaroni, buttons and novelty buttons in different animal shapes – to give the baby something to search for in the jar.
To make it safe for baby to play with, I affixed the jar lid using some 2 part epoxy glue on the inside of the screw top lid – that way the lid can’t be pried open by little hands.
These toys are probably appropriate from 3 months upwards – however once your baby learns that jar’s such as these can be opened it is probably best that they are used under supervision – just in-case they manage to get past the glue!
This is H-Boy’s  very first attempt at painting  – he actually wanted to eat the paint brush more than paint with it – and it was rather messy – but fun all the same!
