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.
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.
