Easy + Creative + Fun = Homemade Toys

The joy of making something – however simple – for your toddlers to play with, to learn from, to remember when they grow up is priceless. Toys made from recycled or scrap material are also good for the environment our children will inherit. It’s also great to be diverse, to give a child many options to choose from and help nurture their independent taste and imagination – after all there are many cat toys that are not Hello Kitty. So for all the heart felt reasons, we have made this page dedicated to all our homemade toy projects.

We love homemade stuff and want to share with you our ideas for making toys at home – unique paper toys to print and make, simple templates for craft toys from home sourced materials and many other simple tutorials that don’t require printing. Woohoo!

We think you’ll also love these paper & cardboard toys by some great designers over at our shop Moon Picnic!

    Thank you for the printables. My great granddaughters are going to love the cone people. I have to figure out what they are wrapped around. One picture looked like there was a can inside. Maybe those tiny bathroom cups will do. I will have to figure that out.

    I love your site. We try to conserve on printer ink (especially colour) and my girls love to colour their printouts on their own though, is there a way to offer these toys as colour in yourself? Love these cute toy ideas.
