DIY Baby Toys
I gathered this list of DIY Toys for Babies for a good reason.
Did you know that babies are learning more in the first 3 years then during the rest of their lives? This is a very busy time for them.
There are a lot of “windows of opportunity” where they develop certain behaviors. The best way to stimulate the brain is through play at this age. Of course, toys are perfect.
But don’t rush to the toy store just yet. You can make toys for your baby yourself.
This list of DIY toys is categorized by the developmental skills. Most of the toys are made from household items which makes them even more awesome.
