Recently, I was faced with the fact that buying all the newtoys are ungrateful for the child. First, they are expensive, and secondly, children quickly lose interest in them. In order for your child to develop properly and in due time, he needs different toys and educational supplies that are appropriate for his age and needs. If your child has only learned to keep the head well and turn from back to belly and back, it's time to introduce him to this world. To make this acquaintance go moresuccessfully and fruitfully, make a game mat for your child with your own hands. Such a rug can be bought, but it costs a lot. And if you make a developing mat for your baby with your own hands, it will give him your love, attention and care. Moreover, it's so nice and interesting to make yourself! Developing mat should be colorful andmultifunctional. Its purpose is to train the senses. Bright colors train vision, materials of different texture train the touch, the rattle rumor. There is still taste and smell. These receptors will try to develop other adaptations. A rug, made by hand from rags, buttons and details of toys will be more diverse and interesting than the one you see on the shelves of stores. There, often, the set of functions is limited. In a homemade rug, you can change parts or remodel it, depending on the age of the child. The only advantage of buying a developing mat from home-made - it has arcs fixed in a rug for hanging rattles. But this moment can be overcome if you have the right materials at home. When a child grows up, he already learns to walk andexploring the world in a different perspective, he no longer interested in playing on the floor. For a child of 1,5-3 years old it will be interesting to make a developing board, to which you can attach various things and trinkets that will be found in your home and that will interest a small researcher. Such boards can be, as a team, and only thematic. For example, for a girl, this can be a board with cosmetic accessories, mother accessories, puppetry. For the boy, the instrument panel will be interesting,as in the father's car or a board with fixed tools, locks, switches, sockets and plugs. Exploring these things in such a safe location, the child no longer has the interest to climb into real rosettes and cords. Also, the dashboard can serve as an organizer for office supplies. All children are very fond of all sorts of boxes and bottles withlids and always strive to unscrew them everywhere. To quench children's curiosity and develop small motor skills of the child, make for him a gaming panel with attached lids from the store juice and plastic bottles, so that they open and close. It is very useful for children to learn how to tie laces. It is not only self-service skills, but also the development of fine motor skills, finger massage and attention development. Make lacing games for children with your own hands. It's easy to make colorful rag-books forthe smallest. They are stronger than cardboard and paper. They can be made from suitable flaps from sheets or unnecessary things with pictures. You just need to cut out motifs of the same size and sew them in pairs. For density in each "sheet" sew a few layers of tissue. Then sew them in the books. If you knit, you can tie a huge set of toys. You can tie pendant toys for a crib, developing rugs or just toys, like this colorful house. Make a ball out of rags or pieces of knitwearvery easy. It can be attached to various beads, buttons, ribbons, chains and laces. Of course, you need to ensure that small parts of the child can not tear off or put in his mouth and swallow. All toys that contain dangerous items must be given to the child only under the supervision of the parents. Games and toys invented by caringparents' hands will be much more interesting and more important for the child. And for parents, this is an occasion to remember childhood, do needlework, and play with the child.
