10 homemade toys to play in silence

10 homemade toys to play in silence

For the inspiration post this weekend, I decided to introduce 10 home-made toys to play in silence. They develop concentration, attention and help their children learn to play alone, to have autonomy.

1. Blocks of pool spaghetti

At Andnextcomesl.com I found this wonderful idea to cut pool spaghetti into pieces, use each of them to draw the body part of a robot, animals or people, and then give the children play figurines.

2. Felt Chain

With a little manual skill, you attach buttons to a piece of felt and prepare the material for the children to make a felt chain! See more in this post from Kidsactivitiesblog.com .

3. Sponge blocks

We have talked about these sponge blocks more than once. They are wonderful for calming kids and developing skills like attention and problem solving skills. The original idea is in this post from Innerchildfun.com .

4. Clay Cupcake Kit

We love to set up a little corner for the kids. So, I loved the idea of Mamapapabubba.com to make a kit for the kids to put together clay cupcakes .

5. Cutting corner

Another wonderful little corner was that of Picklebums.com . You line a tray with contact and next to it puts various materials that can be cut out for the child to do their job of cutting and pasting.
