stick + drill = threading game

Aren’t sticks brilliant! I’m certainly getting carried away with them at the moment and have a big pile building up on my windowsill.

All you need to make this threading game is a drill, saw and some sandpaper….and a stick of course.

I took the cut the bark off mine because it was a bit yukky…

Free toys = Smiles all round…hurrah!

      Not sure how big you are planning for outside but keep in mind the hanging/strangling hazard it could create.

  8. Hi, Kate, what a lovely toy, I am going to make it for my kids.

  9. Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
