My daughter recently was a baby, and now she is a schoolgirl. It was with the birth of my girl began my passion for needlework. I knew how to sew and knit before, but I had no need to do something with my own hands. Is that a scarf could tie or pants rolled up.
After the birth of my daughter, I wanted all the things that I could do for my daughter myself. So I tied her first plaedik. Then booties. Then panama. And I was so drawn out that I could not live a day without linking at least a few bars.
When it came time to buy the first educational toys, I was unpleasantly surprised by their value. I could not come to terms with the fact that the musical pyramid of good quality cost so much money, which would be enough for me to buy food for a week.
Of course, there were cheaper options. But their quality was too doubtful: unpleasant smell, etc. And then I decided to make toys for my daughter myself. For half an hour I made a sorter out of the box of shoes and bottle caps with a neck of different diameters.
My daughter was happy to master a new toy, and I began to knit a developing cube. I used a plastic cube as a basis, which has been preserved since my childhood. Tied it with a column and decorated it with different clasps, velcro, lacing. It turned out great!
Girls, and what educational toys like your kids?
