Make Your Own Baby Toys: A Guide for Parents

As a parent, you want to give your baby the best of everything. But when it comes to toys, you don't have to break the bank. You can make your own baby toys at home with just a few simple materials. Tissue removal is a classic activity that babies love.

Instead of letting your little one take all the wipes out of the container, you can recreate the experience with an old tissue box. Once it's empty, cut strips of cloth from blankets or clothes and put them in the box for your baby to pull out. This is a great way to help them develop their grip strength from 9 to 12 months. You may have noticed that babies and toddlers find everyday items like wallets, car keys, sunglasses, smartphones, and even an old plastic water bottle more interesting than expensive flashing toys.

But babies grow so quickly that they can easily get bored with their toys or outgrow them in no time. Safety is also an important factor when it comes to making your own baby toys. Babies put everything in their mouths, so make sure that any materials you use are non-toxic and safe for them to play with.
