Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
As time continues to tick and Governor Baker's Stay At Home Advisory stretches into May, many of us are getting a head-start on some Spring Cleaning. Before you toss your old clothes into a bag to be donated, take a look at how easy it can be to take old clothes and make new toys! These toys are a great way to learn to braid. If you don't want to braid, check out how we used a hol-ee roller toy and simple knots to make a toy.
STEP 1: Gather up old tshirts
STEP 2: Cut into strips & knot 3 strips together
STEP 3: Braid the strips together and knot the end
It's that simple! You can use this as a toy itself, or try braiding other round toys or treats into the toy. Here are a few variations you can try at home, with other toys you may already have:
Bonus! Knot strips together into a small Cat Toy
