Once in a knitting magazine I stumbled upon a cute white hare that was holding a carrot in its paws. My daughter and I just fell in love with him. And I decided, we must act, because before I was fond of knitting and I did quite well. The young mother has little time, but even more wanted to make a surprise, so I took the job at night when the baby was already asleep. The hare was born in three nights. The next day, and many, many days afterwards, he brought great joy to my girl. I didn’t even really understand why, the awkward, pale, eventually spreading hare carried the warmth and love with which he was tied.
Is it better to buy?

What toy can be made for the baby?
If it seems to you that the child has only recently been born, and he does not need toys, you are mistaken. Now the whole world of the baby is limited to his bed, the hands of his mother, outside the room, well, the sky, which he sees from the stroller. And he needs development from the first days of his life! Therefore, right on arrival home, parents hang musical carousels, rattles, and pendants over the baby’s crib. How to make these toys yourself? The first toy, and the most simple, beanbag. We take cardboard, best of all color, we roll up the tube, we glue well and pass a strong thread through it.
The main rule in the manufacture of children's toys - fastening strength, because the pussy cognizes this world also to the taste!) On the one hand, we seal the hole and fill the tubule with the rump. Experiment, different cereals and in different quantities make a different sound. Tried - like - taped the second hole. If we want to make a garland, we make several such tubes and stretch across the crib or stroller so that the baby can reach them with handles. You can also make suspension, only for her, you first make a skeleton (a wire, two stitched crosswise pencils, a hanger), and then you tie rattles to it. The child played with a rattle, remove and hang instead of rattles bright pictures (which are cut from books, magazines, printed and pasted on cardboard). Cheap, bright, informative, developing.

If your crumb has already begun to take the toy in hand - go to a more durable material: plastic bottles, tightly closed jars, well-sewn fabric bags. All this can also be filled with cereal, beads and even put a small bell inside. How many surprises! Plus, we have added a new group of sensations - tactile (that it’s rustling there in this bag, you have to try). Sacks can also be filled with bags and other rustling things. It also gives new sounds and sensations to the fingers. At the age of up to half a year can sew developing mat, unless of course there is time and opportunity. Patterns and samples are easy to find on the Internet.
