Baby Stacking Toys
Save any empty plastic lids like shaving foam and hair spray lids, wash well, and give to baby who can sit well, to practice stacking up, nesting inside each other, and banging together to make noise.
Baby Play Mats
Using an small blanket as your base, sew on brightly coloured fabric pieces in different textures and sizes to create a play mat. Attach short ribbon loops to the corners, and you could attach a teething toy or rattle or two for extra fun.
Baby Sock Balls
Simply roll a clean pair of socks into itself so baby can practice gripping and throwing.
Baby Lid Chains
Start saving plastic lids from milk bottle tops, soft drink bottles, etc. Look for different colours. Punch a small hole into the top of each with a nail, thread onto a length of cord, or ribbon to create a chain of lids that rattles.
