A 5-minute Homemade Toy

Made by Joel Branch Trees 1

I’ve blogged about Made by Joel before…he’s one of my absolute faves! Here, he made the simplest toy: he gathered sticks and twigs with his kids and then drilled a few holes in a sanded piece of wood. The kids inserted the twigs in the holes and voila, insta-forest! It doesn’t beep, light up, or move. But it does entertain, in the simplest way.
