DIY Craft for Baby – Cute Toy Treasure Rattle

Use what you have on hand already. One of the simplest DIY Baby Toy Rattle thingies you can make within minutes.

You will recognize this from my last blog about one year ago and I couldn’t bare it not being shared. I’ve added it here (obviously) and I hope you can enjoy it as much as I did.

You’ve heard this: Children need stimulation to help them flourish.

We pay out hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars each year buying toys that rattle, light up, speak and play music. They are meant to help children with so many things:

  • speech
  • alphabet
  • auditory skills
  • dexterity
  • strength
  • endurance
  • rhythm

and the list goes on and on and on.

Here is something to start them very early on, helping them transition from infancy (visual and auditory stimulation), through tummy time and learning to crawl while it rolls across the floor and helping strengthen their core and improve balance while they learn to sit, reach and shake.

I made one for my son when he was 9 weeks old and he played with it until he was around 2. Back then, I had elbow noodles in it and metallic confetti as well.

Here’s how to make it and what you’ll need.

Keep in mind that you must ensure this lid will not come off!

Use a combination of things that will sound differently or slow the beads or seeds down. Brightly colored items, trinkets, letters, or even a note add a special touch. (Please don’t leave items where baby can reach them.)

Once you’ve prepped your items, you may drop them into the clean, dry bottle. (Please don’t sprout seeds for baby by using a moist container. Kidding!)

You will notice I tied one of the bells and glued it to the lid before gluing it shut. To make sure the glue around the lid didn’t harden stiffly to poke baby’s gums, I pressed and smoothed the glue down before it dried completely. (Please don’t burn yourself with hot glue and don’t leave it near baby.)
