This weekend I accomplished more sewing than I realized! This is just one stack of projects that was finished- used up a lot more thread than I expected! I have been saving spools here and there for B to play with. Mainly he'll hold onto one and carry it around and I'm sure we have a dozen or so laying around the house! My original plan for these was for him to play with because he loves stacking them, and I figured they would also be great for other fine/gross motor skills. I've seen real spool toys for threading yarn and stuff and figured, this is a much cheaper alternative and just as easy and fun for a toddler! I've covered some older spools with washi tape to make them more colorful, but I also just recently followed this board on Pinterest. There were some really cute ideas, but these are some of my favorites!
With Halloween creeping up on us, how cute would these little scary monsters be scattered around the house!
I wish I had more wooden spools so that I could make some of these little cuties!
These are similar to what I was doing with washi tape, but they used fabric instead! (Which we all know, I have more than enough scraps!)
And lastly, how cute would these snowmen ornaments be hanging on the Christmas tree!
