Homemade Toys for Girls and Boys

Homemade is best! The great thing about making toys for children is that you can tailor the toys to your child’s interests. Many toys can be made with supplies you already have on hand, like these great handmade toys I found here on Craftster. 

rlynn made this pirate playset with peg dolls that fit neatly into their own box. This idea would work for almost any theme your child is interested in. How about princesses, or cowboys?

Lightweight cloth tangram blocks will provide hours of creative play. jexxican made these with fabric scraps, so they’re really inexpensive to make.
Aspiring chefs will spend hours of fun playing with hand sewn felt food. blue_lalita put so much detail into every piece that it looks almost good enough to eat!
There’s no need to waste paper when you make a Tic Tac Toe game out of felt, like this one by bann88. Play it at home, or pack it up for a road trip. It’s a great travel toy.
If you know someone who’s obsessed with the Angry Birds video game, make them a set of birds to toss around, like these from K_Mommy. Don’t mess with those birds!

Making toys for your child (or any child!) is almost as fun with playing with them. To find other great ideas for handmade toys, be sure to check out the Toys, Dolls and Playthings board, or click on the word “toy” in the Craftster tag section.
