Homemade Toddler Toy

It was time for a new activity for my daughter's shelf. I put this together using a large spice container (with holes in the lid), the lacing beads, a dowel and a rock. The rock provides stability for the container so that it doesn't tip when she is using it. I pushed the dowel through one of the holes in the lid and since it is a tight fit it stays put. She has really taken an interest to it and it provides just the right challenge while developing eye-hand coordination.

Lovely! I think my toddler would enjoy this as a change from lacing for a while. I'll be sharing a link on One Crafty Place!

Oh, I was wondering how I could make something similar. Thanks for the great idea!

It's me again..Iowa Birdie. :) Thank you for your response-I will definitely be looking for ways to incorporate the things you suggested. Do you have any resources you would recommend (books, blogs, websites, etc.)? Thanks again for helping this momma out!

Thank you! I have an empty spice bottle and a rock and a chopstick - and blocks with holes - it'll do!
