Homemade Baby Toys

Yesterday, when I was shopping at the market I observed a year old baby happily shaking a plastic vitamin bottle. He was involved with this activity for at least 15 minutes. It reminded me of the Montessori sound boxes that children match by hearing. Babies and preschoolers seem to have a natural desire to shake noise makers and rattles.
This has some great homemade Montessori type toys and rattles to make for your baby.
