The Robot loves his maracas and he loves a good drum on anything he can hit. Now it’s time to introduce string, more importantly my home-made guitar. All you need is a baking tin and elastic bands. Put bands on the tin and ta da you have a guitar! Hand it to the baby and see what happens…
CAUTION: Do not leave your baby alone with this! Within moments of handing him his new toy he’d pulled one of the bands off, I intervened, and then I got hit in the leg by the second band that came off. Oh my, did that hurt, I’ve got a bruise to show for it! A solution that I’ve since came up with, tape the bands to the tin. It does makes a really cool noise, I’ve got different size bands and each makes a different sound.
It may not be the best toy for a nine month old but in a few months time, when I try it again, I am sure it will be greatly appreciated!
Do you have any other brilliant DIY toy ideas? Please let me know in the comments, I’d love to try some.
