Make Your Own Play Typewriter

The Frog Princess really likes
"old-fashioned typewriters"
(as she calls them)
She saw one at an Estate Sale and it was
love at first sight.

When she spotted this box
the other day, she knew immediately
what she wanted to make out of it.

She asked me to cut her a slit in the lid,
then she took off with a sharpie and
did the rest on her own.

When I checked on her she was
working away,
above you'll see her finished project.

It's now on her desk.

I think she did a great job.

I love it when kids come up with
creative projects all on their own.

That homemade typewriter is pretty precious! I dream about having an "old-fashioned typewriter" someday, too!

The best toys are home made :)

How creative! We recently went to a fire museum that had an old fashioned typewriter in the chief's office and my children spent the most time playing with that. I would love to find an old typewriter but then I wonder if the novelty would wear off. Hmmm...we should just make one!

Hi there! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I just want to say, YES!, the outdoor hanging pots and pans are awesome and I would love to do that, too. This place really focused on aesthetics as well as a fun place to play/create. I saw another similar place in New Orleans a couple years ago. I hope your idea "pans" out one for you. :-)
