With kids spread out over 11 years, it seems like I’ve had a little at home now for 15 years!  One thing I’ve learned is kids love toys that they can be creative and use their own imagination – they do fall for the plastic light up do this/do that toys in enticing packaging, but it’s the simple, basic toys that they can use almost as “tools” that they play with over time.

That’s why we do Handbuilt Holiday!  Jaime and I both have three kids, and we’ve built them all projects for over a decade!  This year we are working hard to make plans not just great for kids – but easier than every to build!
