Awesome DIY Toys for Kids

Make these awesome DIY toys for kids as a gift for someone special or make one with your child for a fun bonding experience and hours of pretend play. 

DIY Toys for Kids of ALL Ages


I love this Shoebox School For Pretend Play from MollyMoo Crafts! It can be used with Lego characters, small animals, Polly Pockets, and more! 

Making this Cereal Box Monster Jaws from It’s Always Autumn is a STEM activity for sure! And then the hours of fun that can be had experimenting with it is priceless! Also, it would be cool to use in a shadow puppet theater. 

Don’t you just adore the look of this DIY Wooden Robot Buddy Toy from Adventure in a Box? It can be made for a younger child or with an older child for an awesome experience! 


More DIY Toys for Kids

How to Build a DIY Dollhouse from a A Beautiful Mess is incredible and can be used by kids of all ages to go along with all sorts of pretend play accessories! I also love that you can close the doors when it’s not in use. 

Can you even believe that there’s such a thing as a DIY Cardboard Box Play Sewing Machine? This sewing machine from Little Red Window is incredible! 

I love that these DIY Sponge Cakes for Pretend Play can be made and decorated by kids! The Craft Train really made an amazing toy that can be used in a play kitchen, tea party, or for American Girl Dolls!

These DIY Toy Cardboard Cone Binoculars from Molly Moo Crafts could be used at an adventurer birthday party or in the woods on a hike. So fun! 


DIY Toys for Kids to Make and Play


Making DIY Ocean Toy Soap like they did at A Pumpkin and a Princess would be an awesome gift for a friend or family member. I love the idea of customizing it to match a themed bathroom. 

I had a DIY Unicorn Hobby Horse like the one they made at Adventure in a Box when I was a kid. Oh the memories! Throw on a hat and let the play begin! 

You can buy Wooden Play Food DIY or you can make your own like they did at A Beautiful Mess. This is an awesome gift idea too! 

Love love love this DIY Cardboard Cash Register from Pink Stripey Socks! Hours of fun will be had as kids use this in so many ways. 


A DIY Cardboard Pirate Ship from Molly Moo will make a kid (young or old) super happy! The details on the ship are incredible. Get the kids involved in designing the sails of the ship or peg people to come aboard. 

These Super Hero Spoon Puppets from The Craft Train are so cool! This set is perfect for a superhero fan or design different characters to go with your favorite story. 

How sweet are these Mermaid Plush Dolls from A Beautiful Mess?! From the gorgeous hair to the details of the necklace and tail, these mermaids will be a hit with the kids in your life. 

Does this DIY Toy Wooden Barn from Adventure in a Box remind you of your childhood? I love the two stories and the fenced in area for some of the animals. So much fun will be had with this DIY toy.


I just love this collection of DIY toys for kids. I think I’m going to start on the wooden set of play food first. What will you make first?
