Here he is lifting the scoop to dump some blocks into his tractor box.
Tuesday is Daddy/John day. They don't usually spend the whole entire day doing something, but today they did. They ended up building father and son toolboxes. Sweetest thing ever ;) I even burned their initials into the finished products.
I got this idea from another mom's awesome blog, found here. Since I don't have any money, I can't afford to buy her families lovely cars. I do have a whole shop out back, so we produced our own. It actually does drive and roll!!!
That same blog had an awesome stacking toy made out of wood. My dad and I cut out the little pieces and I drilled the holes while my dad fastened dowel rods into the big base piece. Now John can work on stacking and unstacking and using dexterity. I think he is really going to like these, and as a bonus, he can also use them as threading beads on hemp twine that I have.
Here is to making my own toys and seeing things turn out well :)
