A Pinterest board popped in my email for toddler toys. I can't wait to make toddler toys!

The link didn't work, but I'm sure I can figure it out.

Is that fabric? Then you cut the sticks apart like a puzzle?

It's paper. It would fun to have a family picture. I didn't think of fabric. That could be interesting if you had the right prints. I need to buy an xacto knife!

I taught preschool and we used sticks for a lot of things.

I wrote each letter of their name on a stick for them to learn how to spell their name, to copy in writing or different type of glue projects.
I also wrote our letter of the week in Capitol and lower case so they could match those up.
So many things you can do with these!

These are really cute. Think I'll use this idea for catechism class next year. Lots of possibilities here. Thanks Hulamoon. Kathy

Good ideas.

Iv'e been looking a lot online for American made toys. I know my dd's friends and family will probably give all the typical plastic stuff. I found a cute wooden train with letters to spell his name. Now I just have to find the website again. lol

could be kind of a puzzle too, mix it all up and have them reconstruct, good for the children brain developing.

That's a great site! I like the age break down. I could get carried away before he's ready. lol

I just bought this for his first birthday.
