Homemade Minecraft Toys from Reclaimed Cardboard

I am not sure what it is about Minecraft, but kids that are into it seem to get SUPER into it. And on top of the game itself, there are tons of Minecraft products that you can buy for your little gamer. But instead of spending money on cheapo plastic crap, you can raid your recycle bin and spend some time with your kids making custom Minecraft swords, shields, and other Minecraft toys. Twitchetts has a great, detailed how-to to get you going.

Make a Cardboard Sewing Machine

My son Darrol Henry is obsessed with my sewing machine. He’s only 16 months, so his idea of playing with a sewing machine involved banging on it and pulling on parts that maybe he should not pull on. This DIY cardboard sewing machine from Little Red Window looks like the perfect way to let him take that toddler energy out on something a little more age-appropriate. Maybe without the faux needle, until he’s a little bit older.
