Are you looking to do something with random toys laying around the house? I’m sure there is plenty of toys around the house that are still usable. Or even toys that you simply aren’t ready to toss away just yet. Then making a toy wreath for your daughter or son is the answer. However keeping your kid entertained and cooperative throughout the activity can be a challenge. Therefore, having a reward for continuous participation is key, Cocoa Puffs was the answer for us.
In the event, that your kid is anything like Aubrey they won’t want to give up any of their toys for this craft. Therefore, I highly recommend selecting the toys prior to beginning. So that they won’t say no to every toy you take for the wreath. Then continuously having Cocoa Puffs as a snack throughout the DIY to keep both ends happy.

Dia del Niño is coming up and it’s a holiday I hold dear to my heart. I remember growing up in Mexico and been a special day. Every year there would a school festivity where parents would come and enjoy activities with their children. This year I want to inspire all my readers to celebrate Dia del Niño with their kids and why not do a craft. Therefore, this recycled toy wreath would be the ideal craft to bond with your kids at home.
I decided to share a DIY where kids would be involved after receiving such great feedback from a recent post; creative way to store your pets food. Then I thought I’m sure there is tons and tons of junk toys that aren’t used anymore and aren’t ready to be thrown out. Therefore, I put myself to brainstorm in a DIY where those toys could be re-use in a creative form. This toy wreath could be use for a playroom, party decoration or just as an outlet to spend time with your children.
