My kids (and I) are enjoying it. Some scrap wood, a polycarbonate sheet, 4 hook screws, a rubber band, some vinyl electrical tape, and a sheet of felt…homemade fun ready in about an hour.

Abbie’s Homemade Bunny Puzzle for Christmas

This is one of my little girl Abbie’s Christmas presents. I finished it yesterday. I slipped and cut my finger and nail on the scrollsaw blade…my first bad cut. I hope she likes it. It’s darn near unbreakable because the wood I chose, Makore, is so dense. I finished it with linseed oil.

Toy Robot Under Construction

Making some presents this year. Here is a robot under construction. It will be a toy for one of my sons. It still needs many parts, sanding, filing, painting, and sealing. Just a sneak peak.

Homemade Toys

We didn’t have the heart to take away our kids mass-produced toys when we decided plastic is bad. However, I have given them some other ones to throw into the mix. I enjoy the hobby. We save some money on toys. My kids get to play with natural materials and more unique items. Whatever your talents are, I strongly suggest making some fun for your kids. It will make you warm inside. Here are some samples.
