Homemade Toys!

My little boys have such active imaginations these days.  It doesn't take much to get them started down the road of make believe.  This in mind, I thought I would try my hand at some homemade toys. Above is a campfire set I made out of felt.  I was inspired by this beautiful set from "The Land of Nod"; click here to see it.

I just free handed the design of the flames and stones.  For the logs, I rolled up one sheet of felt and then sewed the ends together.  I used "fiber fill" to stuff all the items.

Materials Breakdown
Felt Squares-$2
Fiber Fill-$4
Fun Creating-Priceless

Total Cost:  $6

My boys love to play in this tent we have set up in the basement, and now they have the campfire to go with it. I plan to add some sticks with marshmallows and hot dogs when time allows.

I will be back with more homemade toys I have been working on in upcoming posts.
