DIY Christmas Stacking Toy


This wasn't supposed to be a toy. It was supposed to be a cute little centerpiece for my table. But, like many things in a house with cats, it ended up on the floor. And, like many things in a house with children, the instantly became a new toy. So this post is all about rolling with the punches.

Supplies:
Paper Mache Cones
Acrylic Paint
White Paint Pen

This is one of those super easy mode crafts. You just paint the outside of the cones in cute colors (might need more than one coat). Once it's dry decorate the outside with the paint markers. I had my little one help as much as he had the patience for (which, you know, was about 3 dots).




The cost of supplies was under $10, and this kept him amused for at least five minutes, which is like five hours for a one year old so I'd call this project a success. The fact that the "toy" I've created can also double as a decoration is an awesome bonus.
