I have been pretty inspired to make a few PVC toys for the boys and I am still working out the process in my head as to what the finished product will be. In the mean time I pulled out a few pieces of PCV pipe that Husband had left over from a previous project. We had a 4' long piece that is 2" wide and a few pre-cut pieces that are 2" long and 1.5" wide. My initial idea was to have them use it as a tunnel to roll a ball or a car in but we don't own any toys small enough. So I decided to pull out the good ol' pom poms.
The verdict: Though I really think rolling bells, balls, or cars would have been a little more entertaining (I feel like this project needed noise) It was still fun and W even came up with a game of shoving all the pom poms into the smaller PVC pipes. He was very surprised to find them all on the floor after all his hard work.
B had fun shoving as many pom poms as he could into the longer piece that had a small bucket at the bottom of it to catch them. He also enjoyed trying to stack the smaller pieces and finally he took a turn at W's game. Has anyone made kids toys with PVC?
