Best thread ever!

Have you all seen the blog Our Little Nature Nest? I just found it yesterday and I find it nearly impossible to tear my eyes away. It has the most AMAZING handmade toys with instructions. There are so many activities on there that I never would have even thought of. I am going to be following this blog for years to come. It's got so many different toys I want to make for my daughter.

What a GREAT idea!  But no, I don't have the time.  Maybe after the holidays we could work on it before next year... :)

I've come to this thread so many times over the last years.

 

It's inspired us to go totally handmade for our holidays for two years now.

 

I'm really pleased with how my efforts turned out this year. I took ideas from here but made them my own. I'd love to hear what you think of what I made this year.

 

Click here for our homemade Waldorf tree house.

 

Click here and here and here and here for some other holiday homemades.

 

Isn't making toys soooo much for fulfilling than buying them? I just love this thread.

Oh my goodness, I've saved a few pictures of the tree houses, but yours is unparalleled! How can I be satisfied with what I might cobble together after seeing its beauty?

Hi, always a fan of make at home toys and I have been online looking for ideas.  I also love eco friendly toys and found this great website for toys that children can make themselves and then play with for days on end.  Went on this site  http://horseplaycraftyparties.co.uk/Craft-Kits/Animals?zenid=80f0c04513ccd9cc94a6215d1ba93665 and got a few easter animal kits for my kids to make, much better than heaps of chocolate.  Have bought hobbyhorses from them before and my children loved them.  Great for parties too.  Hope this is of help.  Enjoy making!
