My first child (Sweet Tween) was into everything. If it was put away, she pulled it out. If it was supposed to be out, she put it away. So one day I came up with this DIY toddler toy to keep her busy for 5 minutes. We even used it as a quiet toy at church. All three of my kidlets had one when they were toddlers and LOVED it. It’s great for doctor offices, airplane trips, restaurants, or just a boring afternoon.
Here’s a little video of how this awesome, easy DIY toy works:
This is all you need to make it: Frosting can and canning lids, a knife, and a permanent marker. You can also use frozen concentrated juice tops, or other containers (sour cream, yogurt, etc). The frosting can works well because it has a strong lid and you can take the label off.
