Update:
For the week of 03/09/13-03/16/13
Make a toy using fabric scraps! Can be anything, just be sure to use up some of your scraps.

03/17/13-03/31/13
Make something with a Spring or Easter theme!

04/01/13-04/07/13
Educational or ABC, etc. Make some fun learning toys! Bonus points if you use yarn!

04/13/13-04/20/13
How about something for a trip or out and about? Examples beach bag, sand mat, busy book for in the car




Rules:

The first person to post with finished pictures of this week's challenge gets to pick the challenge next week.

When picking the challenge you can be as vague or specific as you wish.











To follow along with each other and make toys for our kiddos? There are tons of ideas on pinterest, we could take turns picking inspiration and show off our creations. I'm thinking things like felt food, stuffies, toys out of recycled materials, etc.
I have a ton of stuff pinned on pinterest and I'm sure other people do to.
We could have weekly challenges, but I don't want to do points, just a see and share type thing.
Anyone want to?

I would be totally inspired by it! This month, however, I'm committed to some clothing projects for DS... He needs summer clothes, fast!!

Here are some of the ideas I've pinned:

http://m.pinterest.com/adjroberts/toys-to-make/

http://m.pinterest.com/adjroberts/stuff-to-make/

http://m.pinterest.com/adjroberts/felt-food/

I've already made the marble maze thing, I can post a picture if anyone wants to see it. And I made a baby toy out of a frosting container, ribbon, beads, and a bell.

I'm thinking about making one of those baby grab ball things next, but idk if it is out of my league lol

I will post the pictures of toys I've already made tomorrow, and pick a new toy to make. Anyone have a toy you want to make this week?

Cool! That sounds fun! I want to make my son some stuffed fish for his birthday (one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish) I will start on that soon. I made a soft block but I lost my camera cord. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Awesome pins. I've made felt balls and colored play silks for my kids, that's about it. I'd love to try making a few new things though! I'll be watching here for ideas. I have made stuffies in the past but got rid of them because my kids just didn't play with them. I do have some felt scraps I'm looking to use up.

This is great I want to do it too.. Are you going to start on weekend or Monday? And will you give the pin to make what ever? Who ever decides what to make that week?
