Making homemade threading beads really is simple. All you need is a good stick, a few tools and a bit of patience. The end result looks great and would make a wonderful handmade gift for a toddler.
First you need to collect a big stick! I found one on the ground whilst walking in the woods and it was about 3.5cm in diameter. Do make sure you jump up and down on it a bit to make sure it’s not rotten!
Then you simply saw the stick into disks, drill a hole in the middle of each disk and then sand the ends….! I didn’t do any measuring at all – for this project irregularity works well.
I didn’t treat the wood with anything as my little boy is always putting things in his mouth – you could try beeswax though if you wanted to seal the wood.
I‘m not entirely sure who had more fun collecting conkers today. My husband and I or the boys?! Anyway, it was a good laugh and the boys have been playing with them at home for a surprisingly long time.
This morning they have been counting them, sorting them into different containers and sticking googly eyes on them!
My two are still a bit young for playing ‘traditional’ conkers but hopefully next year they will be old enough and my hubby and I will be able to open up the age old debate on the best way to harden them. Suggestions please!
I love simple paper toys. Yes I’m talking about whirly birds – I’m sure you remember them. My son and I have been making them today and we’ve both been pretty entertained.
These neat little gizmo’s are really easy to make and just impossible to photograph! Click on the link below for instructions and a template.
