What is it about babies that makes us want to shower them with gifts? I can’t resist cute baby things, but my inner green crafter tsks at those consumerist impulses. When I can I try to make things for my little guy instead of buying, and I bet that I’m not the only crafter that does that! Need some ideas for DIY baby toys to keep your kiddo entertained without hurting the planet? Try some of these tutorials!

There’s one last baby toy that I couldn’t justify numbering on this list, but I also couldn’t bear to leave out: the cardboard box. My son loves climbing in and out of a cardboard box, throwing it, and pushing it around the room. It’s basically the best DIY baby toy ever.
Have you made any fun upcycled baby toys? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!
