Five Activity Toys Made From Recycled Materials

5. Felt Board Playset

Our very own Julie Finn gives us a tutorial on creating a felt board play set. You can create as many different shapes and figures that your kids’ imagination can dream up. This would be a great way to learn your ABC’s and 123’s.

What kind of activity toys do your kids like to play with? What sort of toys did you play with as a child? Do youΒ have any other eco-friendly toy ideas or projects? I would love to see some projects and get some links.

  1. I’m looking for some indoor activity toys to make for our kids when we’re in our building’s exercise room. The beanbags are a great idea, can’t believe I haven’t done that yet. I’ve also made a simplified felt board out of an old laptop case, thrifted felt sheets plus (new) fabric.
    I’m on a search for more things… will send you links if I find anything interesting!

  2. Thanks for linking to my article on making puppets from recycled materials. I will just add that the picture you have used on your site is not mine; but from a puppeteer named Hilary Talbot. Attribution is required to use the image.
