DIY toys to build with your children

All kids love toys. All kids love playing with different kinds, even if when they’re young they prefer the boxes over the expensive toys we get them, playing is a very important part of their development.

Nowadays, it is not that usual to see parents building toys with their children. With tools like Amazon, where you order something and in less than 24 hours you have it on your front door, the willingness to sit and build a toy from scratch slightly disappears.

That being said, we think differently. We sincerely believe that kids who gather a nice amount of skills during their childhood, are those who are going to believe in themselves, and then change the world.

Therefore, in this short, but extremely useful blog post, we are going to show you 50 toys you can build together with your kids. Yes, you are going to see 50 great and simple toy ideas you can start building right away.

Getting your, and your kids’ hands dirty while going through a hands-on experience will nurture your children with self-confidence, trust, and the certainty that everything is possible and anything is doable.

Let’s get ready. Save some materials you used to consider waste and build some toys you and your kids will truly appreciate, and most likely never forget.

Hands-on learning is great. While building their own toys with your help, your children will find out that this is much more fun and engaging than just going to the store to get something new. This process will enable them to interact with nature, to comprehend the value of recycling, to learn from real-life experiences, to think with both sides of their brains (just like when playing chess), to build better and stronger motor skills, and to explore a new field with their five senses.

Just so you know, some of the benefits of DIY projects with kids are:

  • Boosting their social and interpersonal skills
  • Strengthening their problem-solving capabilities
  • Encouraging their self-expression and confidence
  • Practicing their creative thinking abilities

Making their own toys goes beyond saving a few bucks. Building their own toys, with the help of parents, can truly help your kids become a better prepared human being. Believe it or not.
