In lieu of Christmas soon arriving, I thought I would introduce/reintroduce some of the great homemade toys that we have around our house. Homemade toys are perfect for little ones! Why spend tons of money on things you can make easily?
Remember this Homemade Geoboard post? J still enjoys it today. I recently put one together for his older cousin and included some example patterns with the board. I took example photos of shapes, patterns, letters, numbers and pictures on the geoboard for him to replicate. For even older ones, you could simply include a list of things to create and leave off the pictures. That would add a level of difficulty.
I think this would made a great homemade Christmas gift!
