DIY Toy Instructions

Now it is time to put it all together!

  1. Use the white paint pen to draw snowflakes and Snowflake Drop  on the sides of the plastic jug.
  2. Use the PSA Essentials supplies (or other stamps) to add snowflakes to the wooden circles.
  3. Under careful supervision, let baby drop the snowflakes and listen to the sounds they make.

Creating snowflakes from some different materials might be fun as well.  Craft pom poms, cotton balls and paper snowflakes would all feel different to the touch and make different sounds.

  1. If you were to put letters on the wooden circles you would be able to say things like, ” Oh, look! You have the yellow Y.” I’m not saying force them to look, but simple exposures like that go a long way. Also, when they’re a little older you could put the cap on it with a cut out hole to help with fine motor. Oh, I’m going to have to make this! I love activities you can change and make new. Thanks for the idea!
