The Joy Of Homemade Toys!

We all know that when you give a baby a new toy to play with, they usually spend more time playing with the box it came in. Just this past Christmas my daughter was turning 1 year old two days after Christmas. She was spoiled with all kinds of expensive toys and gifts. And do you want to know what she did? She pushed them all aside and went crazy playing with the bows that came on the gift boxes! She made herself an entire collection of them and months later she was still playing with them. I can't say as much for the toys...

What does this tell us, as parents? Babies and small children like simple toys. Hand them a cup and a spoon and they will play happily for hours. Go and buy them the most expensive high-tech toy and they are bored with it in mere minutes.
