Make Something Out of Nothing for Your Kids: Crochet Toys

These finger puppets can become the shepherds, wise men or the Holy Family
I have more time than money so I like to make my gifts for all my adult “kids,” kids-in-law, and grandkids. It is important in our consumer-driven society to show children they can create toys with things around the house. Boxes can become dollhouses or a car; a blanket can be used to make a tent rather than buying a playhouse. Parents have to encourage and model creativity, making use of material around the house. Teach little ones how to substitute and make do when they don’t have what they think they need.
