Make a Shaker

There's one thing in life that really makes me happy and it's to see someone enjoy something that I made.
... Especially if that someone is my own bubba!   
... and that something is a very cheap Shaker!  
A shaker made from a 4dips container, washed, filled with beans & glued shut.
Most excellent fun to have!
He also loves the old clear orange juice container with a spare lid inside it and the vitamin bottle filled with rice.
Scraps of yarn are fun too as well as my shoelaces, my slippers and the laptop cable!

You'll have to excuse the huge nappy picture of Joe, because he wears cloth nappies & they make his butt look huge!

And just in case you doubted me, here's some proof.....
First with the 4dip shaker...

Then with the rice/vitamin shaker...


  1. Bless, he's very cute! And great idea, it's always the cheapest toys that are the favourite

  2. Stop It Joe, ya making me clucky, ya little cutie. Way to go Rie, they always love the box and the wrapping paper as well. Last year Hubby made pretend rocks, for the boys digger and dumper, from the chrissie paper and clear masking tape. They play with those rocks more then the rest of the toys they received.

    Cheers, Deb

  4. Oh my, he's so gorgeous! What a delightful little boy you have! I love how the simplest things amuse them. The world is such a mysterious and wonderous place and we think they need such extravagant toys. :)
