simple toys create big imaginations 🧠

Are there any everyday items you are surprised your children love to play with? While looking over pictures from last year (2019) I found this one of my son Aedan sitting in a wooden bowl his Grandfather had turned. It has been used as a balance seat, a mountain, a stepping stone, the sun, the moon and well a bowl. Really is a wonderful item for storage, sorting, activities and imaginative play. . . . - Cloth bib and cloth diaper from @smartbottoms - Green shirt from Cat&Jack at @target . . . #childhhoodunplugged #toddlerhoodunplugged #woodentoys #simpletoys #simplethings #lessismore #ourmemories #woodtoys #montessori #asimplelife #waldorf #howweplay #babyfeet #lovethiskid #farTravels #playtime #babiesofinstagram #mywholebaby #2019 #oneyearagotoday

🐰The biggest hit of the bunny basket has most definitely been his new stackers from @mushie_co! ⁣ ⁣ I got these weeks ago and have been impatiently waiting since. I think the bigs would have been happy with a set each too! 😂 ⁣ ⁣ Hope you all had a blessed Easter weekend. It was probably our most laid back celebration ever but just what we all needed! ⁣ . . . . . #mushie #mushiebaby #simpletoys #bpafree #babyplayideas #babygoods #Motherhoodunplugged #Motherhoodinspired #Motherhoodthroughinstagram #boymom #baby #babyboy #neutralbaby #mama #honestlymothering #motherhood #themotherhoodcorner #joyfulmamas #sweetmoment #mommyblogger #instablogger #britthavenspresets

Let’s talk about baby toys! There are so many options out there. However, my minis tend to gravitate towards « no-tech » toys (toys that don’t use batteries, no lights, no songs, no sound effects). Don’t get me wrong, we have lots of « tech » toys 😝 but the ones they play with the most, are simple and versatile. My ten month old’s favourites are 1️⃣ Instruments! 🎸 🥁 🎺 🎹 Even homemade instruments like rice in a small container or a good old wooden spoon and a pot! 2️⃣ Sorting blocks - she loves to stack them, put them in and take them out, or throw them across the room. 😆 3️⃣ Megablocks - Enough said, these are a classic toy and very versatile. They encourage creativity and imagination! 4️⃣ Balls, especially textured balls are a big hit! We use these toys every day! They’re great to develop your child’s receptive and expressive language. ➡️ Use a variety of words when playing with your mini! Naming objects isn’t the only option. ➡️ Make sure you incorporate CORE WORDS! What are core words? They are high-frequency words that make up the majority of what we say (check out the picture above for some examples). ➡️ Add some verbs and adjectives in there as well! ➡️ Use short, simple but COMPLETE sentences (or phrases). What are your favourite baby toys? Stay tuned for my favourite toddler toys! #corewords #slp #slpmom #slpmama #notechtoys #slpsfollowslps #momcanada #playtime #babytoys #simpletoys #melissaanddougtoys #megabloks

These tiny little fingers... all they wanna grab is.... EVERYTHING! So why not put a cute little block in their hand?! Our blocks are pretty... but they’re also great for little hands to imagine, to play, to build, to learn. Little hands grow, and our blocks will grow with them and provide new ways to play! Give the gift that keeps on giving!

“My Little Ram” est. Sep. 2020 🐏 . Feeling cozy in my shop girl outfit and cuddling up with this cute ram plushie🥰🤎🍂🧺 . I was inspired by the ram emoji when I made this plushie.🐏I wanted it to be unique and just simple, but cute and soft, something you’d want to snuggle up with🤗 . Handmade using felt and stuffed with an all-natural 100% organic Kapok fiber fill, this little plushie makes a great item for decoration or can instill imaginative pretend play for young ones. .

Eeeek! Pine cones are everywhere right now. ❤️❤️❤️ I always want to gather them and bring them home, maybe dip the tips in white paint and glitter. I am especially drawn to the short, fat ones that fit in the palm of your hand. They remind me of the outdoors, the forest, the smell of pine. I started thing about it, and found that Conifer Pine Trees are one of the most ancient plant genera on the planet, having existed nearly three times longer than all flowering plant species. 😯 Pinecones are a symbol of longevity to the Algonquian tribes of the northeast, and to the Great Lakes tribes, such as the Anishinabe and the Potawatomi, pine trees also represent wisdom and harmony with nature. Pine cones were considered symbols of fertility by Romans, Greeks, Assyrians, and Christians. Pine cones have also been associated with the Third Eye, enlightenment, and the pineal gland. The Fibonacci Sequence is evident if you look at the bottom of a pinecone. This sequence is found everywhere in nature, from flower petals, to sea shells, to galaxies and even in our own DNA molecules. Basically, it's nature's building block. It's Nature's programming code for order and evidence that harmony does exist (and in fact, prevails) in almost every corner of the universe. The next time I am tempted to pick up a pinecone, I will remind myself to stop and see that it is more than decoration. It is one of the most ancient messages from the universe that harmony exists everywhere, even when I'm not looking for it. So, those are my deep thoughts for the day, inspired by Ekta, the handfelted gnome, and my second cup of French Roast. Thank you, Ekta....and coffee.

We hit 200 followers (well just over)! So just a little hi from me and my two and a thankyou for following our little journey of play 💚 This pic was taken on our holiday in beautiful Cornwall just last week. My boys are 1.5 and 3. S3 is very sensitive and loving, W1 is a little independent tornado. I'm a dunga loving accountant trying my best to incorporate long lasting quality toys into our collection and encourage independent play. In a dream word all our toys would be gorgeous wooden toys but in reality my kids have loved noisy huge plastic things so we are slowly adjusting where we can. #mumoftwo #mumofboys #learnthroughplay #imaginitiveplay #tufftrayplay #outdoormama #lovetheoutdoors #playallday #tufftray #loosepartsplay #montessoriplay #woodentoys #supportsmallbusinesses #playallday #workingfromhome #lockdownplay #grapattoys #grimmstoys #creativeplay #outdoorplay #dinosaurplay #dinosaurobsessed #carobsessed #playwithcars #simpleplaysetup #simpletoys #simpleplay

Autumn treasures! 🍁 This is what the girls have been playing with all week long. 🍁 I know I’m not the only only whose kids come home with pockets loaded with “treasure 😂” and by treasure I mean rocks, conkers, pine cones and acorns 🤣 🍁 Well I’ve decided to put all this treasure to good use and we made a little autumnal village with acorn people. 🍁 I find as a mama having loads of toys really overwhelming, it becomes a struggle trying to keep everything tidy so I keep it fairly simple. And the simpler you make it, the less you feel overwhelmed and the more you are able to enjoy the joyful moments of play with the little ones. 🍁 As we enter the coming months and the whole world is marketing toys toys toys to me, I just want to be able to remember the best thing I can give my kids right now is my time.

I took our dog, Luna, outside before bed and caught my eyes traveling to the sky. 💫 The stars were shining and it stopped me in my tracks... when was the last time I looked at the stars? Like really looked at them? I can’t honestly remember. In fact, I think I forgot that they still shined.⁣ ⁣ I know I’m not alone when I say that life seems to be speeding by these days. I hate it. I hate the complicated, chattery life that has become most everyone’s normal.⁣ ⁣ My goal is presence. It’s reconnecting to a simpler life and creating an environment of peace, play and rhythm with the earth for my daughter. I want her to experience the pure magic that is childhood- the way it should be 💛⁣ ⁣ I’m disconnecting from those things that take up space that don’t deserve it so I can have space for the things that do. That is my #equinox intention. What is yours? 🍁🍂

Sorry that I haven’t posted in a while! We’ve been super busy with safety testing the Eco Surprise toy range. It’s been a huge undertaking but a very important one at that. We’ve certainly put the toys through their paces! They’ve been battered, stretched, soaked, set fire too, we even did a ‘chocolate spread’ test to see how they washed! 😂. Today’s play set-up was inspired by my little one who is learning about dinosaurs at school and is dinosaur mad at the moment!! These are a couple of dinos from our Jurassic Collection. 🦕 🦖 #ecosurprise #ecochild #ecoparenting #ecoparty #ecopartybags #ecotoys #ethicaltoys #greenparent #imaginitiveplay #montessoriinspired #naturebasedlearning #naturekids #openendedplay #openendedtoys #plasticfreetoys #reggiotoys #simplechildhood #simpletoys #supportsmallbusiness #suprisetoys #surprisetoy #waldorfinspired #waldorftoys #woodenanimals #woodentoys #zerowastekids #zerowasteparty #montessoritoys #naturebasedlearning #forestschool

Christmas shopping 🛍 ___________________________ Dare I say the word.. but yes Christmas shopping has began in our house. I hate the mad rush you have in December when you realise you have so much left to do. When really all I want to be doing is wrapping and enjoying a hot coco and all the joy Christmas brings for us and the boys. This year i am passionate changing the direction of toys. I want to have a more natural and non electronic based toys for the boys. (Less is more) I have found over this year all they really play with are the toys where they need imagination, the most simple toys of them all. Now I just hope we don't end up with toys from family members that are not what we would like. 😕 ~How do you direct your family to buy gifts in the style you would like your children to have? ~Has anyone else began their journey to a low waste , non toxic life since children?

Do you ever notice that your kids gravitate to the simplest toys?! Even a box can give them hours of enjoyment?! Our blocks are a bit fancier than a box, but they’ll provide your kids with hours of enjoyment too!! The fact that they’re gorgeous is just a bonus ;)

I didn't think that this very Simple toy would be such a hit for my child! I was especially shocked because we have a typical Montessori coin box and it didn't make any impression on him, he used it more as a drawer to store balls. While playing, we practice: - eye-hand coordination - fine motor skills - colors You need: - cardboard or other box or container - stickers, printed pictures or paints - large colored buttons 🇵🇱 Nie myślałam, że ta mega prosta zabawka będzie takim hitem dla mojego dziecka, szczegolnie, że mamy podobną typowo Montessori i nie robiła na nim jakiegoś super wrażenia, bardziej służyła jako szufladka na kulki. Bawiąc się ćwiczymy: - koordynację oko-ręka - motorykę małą - kolory Potrzebujesz: - karton lub inne pudełko lub pojemnik - naklejki, wydrukowane obrazki lub farbki - duże kolorowe guziki #simpletoys #thesimplerthebetter #easytoys #naturaltoys #montessori #montessoritoddler #montessoribaby #learnandplay #homeactivitieswithkids #learnthroughplay #toddlers #babies #kids #family #nanny #teacher #21monthsold #eyehandcoordination #finemotorskills #prostezabawki #naturalnezabawki #dzieci #maluchy #rodzina #niania #nauczyciel #koordynacjawzrokoworuchowa #koordynacjaokoręka #motorykamała #thefamilylearningplace

Little one requested her own activity today of washing our woodland footprint stones by @yellow_door_education because she saw it as an idea on the box they come in. She's really into picking them out and naming each animal, turning it over and confirming that the other side is the footprint! They're lovely quality rounds made from a resin mix with the animal on one side and the footprint on the other. We've used them before to make Playdoh prints and will use them in the future for lots more activities! #toddlers #toddleractivities #playideas #simpletoys #sensoryplay #messyplay #waterplay #toddlerlife #toddlerideas #woodlandfootprints

“The learning that babies and young children do on their own, when they carefully watch an unexpected outcome and draw new conclusions from it, ceaselessly manipulate a new toy or imagine different ways that the world might be, is very different from schoolwork. “Babies and young children can learn about the world around them through all sorts of real-world objects and safe replicas, from dolls to cardboard boxes to mixing bowls, and even toy cellphones and computers. Babies can learn a great deal just by exploring the ways bowls fit together or by imitating a parent talking on the phone. (Imagine how much money we can save on ‘enriching’ toys and DVDs!) “But what children observe most closely, explore most obsessively and imagine most vividly are the people around them. There are no perfect toys; there is no magic formula. Parents and other caregivers teach young children by paying attention and interacting with them naturally and, most of all, by just allowing them to play.” 💫 (from New York Times article, “Your Baby is Smarter Than You Think,” by Alison Gopnik) . . . #childhoodofwonder #alisongopnik #blueskythinking #playallday #openendedtoys #letthemplay #playislearning #play #letthembelittle #makeroomforplay #simpletoys #waldorfeveryday #waldorf #waldorfathome #waldorfinspired #montessoriathome #montessoritoddler #montessoriinspired #simpletoys #woodentoys #gentleparenting #peacefulparenting #respectfulparenting #consciousparenting #inspiredparenting #joyfulmama #joyfulparenting

What wonders can you see..! ____________________________♡ Over lockdown and all the walks we filled our days with. C became really interested in what he could see flying above him. From Bird, aeroplanes, helicopters and the beautiful butterfly's. He asked a few times for some Binoculars, so as a treat we got him some. Wow what a difference to our walks it has made. He is never to tired to finnish the walk anymore, he says he has to much to see... And we are seeing more things then ever. I love watching his face light up with so much joy when he finds a bird or can see a deer more clearly and still being a safe distance. Funny isn't it how we sometimes think children need all these electronic toys we see so much on TV but really a simple pair of binoculars bring fair more joy. #homeeducation #nature #loveourplanet #simpleliving #simpletoys #slowlivingmovement #timespendtogether #ecomum #stoplandfill #stoppointlesstoys #learningaboutnature #learningathisownpace #outside #walks #nationaltrust

The clover is fading away here as we transition to cooler weather. With that change, we also have discontinued these clover rattles! Sometimes it’s hard to say good-bye, but they’ve had a great run of several years. Grab one now if you want one, because when they’re gone, they’re gone! Thanks, everyone! Link to purchase is in my profile. The sweet toys have been screen-printed onto linen with my sketch of a clover, and they have the perfect jingle. The USA-made wooden ring makes it easy to grasp with small hands and the pink minky back is super soft. Sewn with care: made simply, made well. UPDATE: Just TWO left!

We've been potty training the couple of weeks. For the first few days we didn't leave the house and it was fine but made it feel like lockdown again with trying to keep little one entertained. I was very grateful for our packs from @playlearngrow7. The Hungry Caterpillar is still going strong and we also played a game where you spin to land on an animal and then cover it until they're all covered. It's easy enough for toddlers and teaches turn taking, etc. Big fans of @playlearngrow7! #toddlers #toddleractivities #playideas #simpletoys #toddlerlife #toddlerideas #playlearngrow #bugs #hungrycaterpillar #theveryhungrycaterpillar #toddlergames #pottytraining #housebound

A small box with compartments or an ice cube tray, plus balls, large beads, dice or daddy's sockets. A lots of fun experiencing new things and practicing eye-hand coordination. How does my child play with it? - puts the beads in the compartments in the box or in the ice container - puts as much as possible into the box and checks if the box can be closed - it wasn't so he had to take a little out, because he wanted to close the box - pulls out the compartments and puts everything into the box as it goes Remember: - be next to them, because these are small elements, and if your child still likes to try everything in their mouths, this toy is not safe for him - let the child play freely, e.g. experience that when there are too many balls in the container, the container cannot be closed - let him think what to do to close this container? - do not criticize, but describe the situation, e.g. "if there are too many balls in the container, it cannot be closed, right?" 🇵🇱 Małe pudełko z przegródkami lub pojemnik do lodu, a do tego kulki, duże koraliki, kostki do gry czy tatowe nasadki do kluczy. Dużo zabawy przy okazji doświadczania nowych rzeczy i ćwiczenie koordynacji oko-ręka. A jak się tym bawi moje dziecko? - wkłada koraliki do przegródek w pudełku lub do pojemnika na lód - upycha do pudełka tyle ile się da i sprawdza czy pudełko można zamknąć - nie dało się więc musiał trochę wyciągnąć, bo bardzo chciał to pudełko zamknąć - wyciąga przegródki i wkłada wszystko do pudełka jak leci Pamiętaj: - bądź obok, gdyż mimo wszystko są to małe elementy, a jeżeli Twoje dziecko nadal lubi wszystko próbować, to ta zabawa nie jest dla niego bezpieczna - pozwól dziecku na swobodną zabawę, czyli np. doświadczanie, że jak jest jest za dużo kulek w pojemniku to pojemnika nie da się zamknąć - pozwól mu pomyśleć, co zrobić, żeby jednak ten pojemnik zamknąć? - nie krytykuj, tylko opisz sytuację, np. "jak jest za dużo kulek w pojemniku to nie da się go zamknąć, tak?" #simpletoys #thesimplerthebetter #easytoys #montessori #montessoritoddler #learnandplay #homeactivitieswithkids #toddlers #kids #teacher #21monthsold #eyehandcoordination #dzieci #maluchy #thefamilylearningplace

🔅Játékajánló🔅 . Bevallom már nagyon vártam, mikor, milyen formában fognak testet ölteni Liliék játékai. Az előkészületekbe ugyan némileg beavattak, de nem tudtam, hogy pontosan milyen termékekkel fognak előrukkolni. Azt azonban sejtettem, hogy újabb izgalmas, természetes játékokkal bővülhet általuk a hazai játékpaletta, és így is lett.😊 A @memootoys fából készült, gravírozott memóriajátékokkal és egy érdekes mesekészlettel startolt. Mi ez utóbbit kaptuk meg tőlük ajándékképp, amiben egy nyűhetetlen, textilre nyomtatott térkép (imádjuk!😍), és néhány korong segít nekünk a saját mesénk eseményeinek kifundálásában. . Én a kreatív mesélés nagy híve vagyok. Megdolgoztatja a képzeletünket, és olyan világokat nyíthat meg előttünk, hol még senki sem járt. Bár teljesen fejből nehéz elővarázsolni egy egész történetet, és néha talán túl fáradtnak érezzük magunkat hozzá a nap végén, de a változatos kiegészitő elemek mankóul szolgálhatnak, még akkor is, ha kezdetben magunk sem tudjuk, hogyan alakuljon a sztorink. . Néha érdemes a könyveket a polcon hagyni, és az estimesét a fantáziánkra bízni. Nagy élmény kicsiknek, nagyoknak. . Ezek után ki kapott kedvet egy kis "fejből" meséléshez??? . . . . . #ajándék #szívbőlajánlom #mese #mesemami #estimese #kreatív #woodentoys #simpletoys #storytelling #doll #sleepwell #gyerekjáték #fajáték #természetesjáték #természetes #naturetoys #hazai #hazaijáték #hazaimárka #magyaranyukák #magyarig #wabisabipark #fantázia #storycards #anyánaklennijó #mesélnijó #mutimitjatszol #anyamesélj

Handwork, like knitting, is the perfect thing to do while Maggie girl plays 🧶 I watch and engage with her, while she discovers her world!    Giving her time to explore a safe space all on her own is the first step to showing her respect and allowing her to build a sense of confidence and independence.    Working on a fun little project for her play area... anyone else make fun “toys” for their little one? 🌈

A simple activity yet good for motor skill development 😉 Bocah ini seneng banget ngeksplor dapur. Bukan mau bantuin masak tentunya, tapi....mainin semua alat dapur, mulai dari panci, wajan, whisk, talenan, sutil dan lain sebagainya. Dikeluarin semua, ditabuhin, dibawa buat nyendokin block sambil pretending lagi maem, puncaknya... dilempar🙈. Lewat alat-alat ini si kecil belajar bermacam-macam bentuk, tekstur, material dan sound. Kalo ditabuh bunyinya beda-beda, apalagi kalo dilempar😂😂 tapi mesti dipastiin ngga ada gelas gelas kaca yang bisa dijangkau☝ #busytoddler#favouriteplay#maindirumah#stayathome#lifewithtoddler#simpleactivity#simpletoys#

Today has been a day of many activities as little one didn't want to stick to anything for very long... Apart from this one! All I did was hide our @safariltd Toob bugs around the garden for little one to find and put in her net. I got asked to hide them multiple times. Such a quick and easy activity! #toddlers #toddlerlife #toddleractivities #toddlerideas #toddleractivities #playideas #simpletoys #hideandseek #freshair #1000hoursoutside #bugs #safaritoob #safaritoobanimals

We tried an activity I saw on @play.together.grow.together 's page to see if little one would make dots in a focused way rather than just letting her loose with a blank page, which is what I usually do. I drew circles on a piece of paper and showed her putting dots in the circles. It started well and then turned into her usual drawing all over the page! Obviously I don't really mind how she draws/makes dots, I was just interested. She clearly couldn't contain the creative side and I'm OK with that! #toddlers #toddleractivities #playideas #simpletoys #prewritingskills #toddlerlife #toddlerart #earlyyearsliteracy #earlyyearsliteracyfun

The classic wooden alphabet blocks. A staple in every household. These blocks which are completely customizable come painted on four-sides with capitol letter, lowercase letter, solid paint, and a pattern/shape. These blocks, which take me hours to perfect, make the perfect: 1st birthday gift, Christmas gift, baby shower gift. A timeless play piece which can be passed along from child-to-child. . . . #woodenalphabetblocks #woodenblocks #bloombloxs #openendedtoys #simpletoys #nontoxictoys #woodentoys #madeincanada #madeinalberta

Purge. Purge. Purge some more. With kids we accumulate so much as they grow and move through developmental stages and body shapes and sizes. I don’t hold onto things when they aren’t used or worn. As we get ready for our last big move I’m being ruthless and nothing is coming that won’t have a place. I love toys that grow with the kids and for the most part all the toys that have lasted through the years regardless of age are all the wooden simple toys. We’ve had this @ikeacanada train set and wooden blocks for close to 5 years and I don’t see them going anytime soon. It’s hard to believe we are a month away from moving! I better get to work...

Too late in the season for eggs/chicks, but - pigeon nest! It's incredibly rare to see a pigeon nest, they're usually tucked away somewhere very secretive! It's funny, but you never see baby pigeons! Believe it or not, pigeons are song birds (I actually really love that owl-y sound they make!) And song bird chicks stay in the nest until they are adult sized - about twice as long as other garden birds! You can still spot a fledgling pigeon as they don't have that beautiful shimmery green and purple around the neck. #Waldorfwoodentoys #Waldorftoystore #Montessoritoys #Montessorimaterials #pegdolls #pegdoll #pegpeople #Kidsgiftideas #smallworldplay #Montessorihome #learnsomethingnew #sensoryplayideas #playtolearn #montessorieducation #finemotoractivity #loosepartsplay #childledlearning #earlyyearsideas #tufftrayideas #waldorfathome #playathome #waldorfeducation #simpleplayideas #independentplay #learnandplay #Woodentoylove #simpletoys #woodentoyaddict #classictoys

When a few weeks ago I saw a similar Montessori toy somewhere on the Internet, I knew that I have to make something like that for my baby. First version that I made included paper rings. Now, I changed it to wooden rings. It was a great step as rings are more durable and easier to hold in small hands. Playing with that Simple toy helps with eye-hand coordination which is really important in child development. You need: - old large bobbin or piece of slat and something that will be it's basis - stick or slat - string - screw - screwdriver - wooden rings - paint 🇵🇱 Kiedy kilka tygodni temu zobaczyłam gdzieś w sieci tę montessoriańską zabawkę to wiedziałam, że muszę zrobić coś podobnego. I tak powstała jej pierwsza wersja z papierowymi kółkami. Teraz trochę ja udoskonaliłam dokupując drewniane kółka. I to był strzał w dziesiątkę, bo kółka nie dość, że są bardziej trwałe to łatwiej je trzymać w rączkach. Podczas takiej zabawy dziecko ćwiczy równocześnie koordynację wzrokowo-ruchową, która jest niezwykle ważna w rozwoju dziecka. Potrzebujesz: - szpulkę lub kawałek listewki i coś na podstawę - patyczek lub listewka do końcówki sznurka - sznurek - śrubka - wkrętarka lub śrubokręt - drewniane kółka - farbki lub mazaki #simpletoys #thesimplerthebetter #easytoys #naturaltoys #montessori #montessoritoddler #montessoribaby #learnandplay #homeactivitieswithkids #learnthroughplay #toddlers #babies #kids #family #nanny #teacher #21monthsold #eyehandcoordination #prostezabawki #improściejtymlepiej #naturalnezabawki #domowezabawyzdziećmi #dzieci #maluchy #rodzina #niania #nauczyciel #koordynacjawzrokoworuchowa #koordynacjaokoręka #thefamilylearningplace

Recently I brought out the adorable patterns I had from @ohalbatross to make some some gifts for a newborn and a little person starting school this September, and they are as lovely, lovely, lovely as always. I made this set (the first two are from the patterns, the last one self drafted from scraps; the scarfs were my addition) for my daughter a couple of years ago and we’ve honestly played with them so much, still do, regularly. I imagined them as being more decorative toys (they are so beautiful to look at), but actually she uses them a lot for storytelling (with there being three, which is the same as our family, we began with repeat reenactments of Goldilocks, but we’ve come up with lots of others too). I recommend this pattern so much! And all of @ohalbatross’s gorgeous work. So good for these holiday months ahead - to be able to make gifts from leftover fabrics is very sweet 💙🐻🐰 Patterns: The Dear One’s Bear and Bitty Bunny patterns by Regina Groleau, made in leftover wool fabrics. [image description: 1: a sweet, tightly-stuffed little hand sewn bear made in a dark grey-blue herringbone wool fabric, wearing a pink herringbone scarf. It has simple face features embroidered in black silk thread; 2: a sweet, tightly-stuffed little hand sewn bunny with long ears, made in a pink herringbone wool fabric, wearing a dark gray-blue herringbone scarf. It has simple face features embroidered in black silk thread; 3: a tiny baby bunny made in the pink fabric. All of them are against a plain light coloured background.] #HandmadeToys #MadeFromScraps #DearOnesBear #BittyBunny #OhAlbatross #MakeYourOwnToys #SimpleToys #Sewing #SewingForKids #HandmadeGifts #HandmadeTeddy #HandmadeBunny #ZeroWasteToys

“In this way, we make a molehill out of a mountain, leaving for the child a mix of toys that they enjoy most consistently, and for the longest periods of time. Rarely are these favorites complex, or motorized; rarely do they ‘do’ anything. The toys that are too detailed or complicated—too ‘fixed’—can rob a child of an imaginative experience. “Dear nighttime toys can never disappear. Even if they are totally hideous, dear nighttime toys are nonnegotiable. The remaining toys have to include a mixture of active toys: building, digging, construction toys; and more receptive toys, such as dolls and stuffed animals, toys that just receive. There can also be creative materials, such as paints, crayons, and some modeling substances, such as beeswax or clay. “The toys with staying power are usually—not always, but pretty consistently—figures of some sort, either dolls or knights or stuffed animals; building toys; and scenes or dwellings of some sort, into which the child loves to project his or her figures, and thus themselves.” Kim John Payne and Lisa M. Ross, from Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids . . . . . #childhoodofwonder #simplicityparenting #openendedtoys #letthemplay #playislearning #play #letthembelittle #makeroomforplay #simpletoys #buildingtoys #beautifultoys #woodentoys #gentleparenting #peacefulparenting #respectfulparenting #consciousparenting #inspiredparenting #joyfulmama #joyfulparenting
