Homemade Toys

Let's get crafty!

I'm a student on a budget, so I need to save up as much as possible. Homemade toys are the best. Plus, they are fun to make and can make you think outside the box. So far, I have made rattles for Medina and play-doughs. Check them out!

Instead of throwing that transparent bottles away, you can put all sort of things in them so that they make different sounds. You can put sand, seeds, pebbles, paper clips, beans and etc.

Medina is too young to play with play-doughs. So I put them in snap lock bags. I let her squish and squash the play-doughs in the bags. She can also feel the cold of the dough. It's good for her touch senses.

Here is the recipe for the play-dough:

2 cups of flour
1 cup of salt
1 table spoon of cooking oil
1 cup of water

Mixed those three ingredients together and maybe split them into three or four doughs if you want. Then you can put a few drops of food colouring on each dough and mixed them up again. Voila! That's all you need to do.

Have fun!

ps: If your child put the dough in his/her mouth, it's okay because they are food product.
