Made to Play!: Handmade Toys and Crafts for Growing Imaginations


We’ve written before about how much we love Made By Joel, Joel Henrique’s website that features his charming handmade children’s toys. This means we also love Joel’s first book, Made to Play even more!

The book compiles a number of great toy-making and craft projects for children and their parents. Categorized by fun themes (The Zoo! Cars and trucks! Music and art! Dress-up!), most of the projects use ordinary crafting materials, like paper, fabric, tape and glue to make versatile and simple toys that kids can be proud they had a hand in making. Many of Joel’s creations are appealing to grownups as well.
