  1. I love home made games and toys. It helps to encourage the kids to think about how to make it, how it fits together and what they’re wanting the game to do. Then they have the satisfaction of seeing the end result…. the satisfaction of knowing that they made it themselves, and then they can enjoy the game.

    Great ideas.
