We dyed the wooden spools in food colouring (didn't really take) and kool aid (really took) in a rainbow of spring colours.
Some of them are very old and have great industrial stamping on the side. I love the ones that say "Made in Canada"!
But these are Matthias's toys, not mine.
As the toddler in a large, home schooling family, Matthias is frequently short-changed. I'm trying to be mindful of him and give him new things to do each day (besides cutting up important tax documents with scissors).
|That's bread, not beads, that he's stuffing in his mouth.|
We gave him a shoe lace with a knot in one end. (Don't mind that he's covered in food. It was lunch time, you know!)
One more thing for a busy baby to do!
