You do not need to spend a bomb on keeping your baby happy, as discussed in another article on using regular household stuff to create innovative toys for babies and toddlers.
On many requests, here we present a full tutorial on making your own rattles.
What you need
- Few Empty containers
You can use whatever is available as long as it can be held easily by the baby and does not have any sharp edges etc.
- Something to make noise like chickpeas, kidney beans or small bells.
- Duct Tape to secure lids
- Paint, stickers and colored paper to decorate
Fill the container with some chickpeas or bells or whatever you want to use.
Close the lid tightly and secure with a tape.
Now use paints or paper to cover the container.
Finally decorate with stickers, paints to your wish.
Make it colourful to attract baby’s attention.
Note: Avoid using glitter or beads on these as they can come out and may pose as a choking hazard.
