- Dye the wood with food coloring! It is very easy to dye natural wood with food coloring. The colors are bright and beautiful and the process is so simple!
- Sand sharp corners. Be sure to sand sharp corners. Children’s skin is tender and will easily get splinters, cuts, and bruises. Sand all your homemade wooden toys to ensure safety.
- Use scraps. Most of these projects can be made out of scraps of wood you may have leftover from other projects. This makes them cheap, simple, and great for tiny imaginations!
