Homemade toys: the sleepy village

Homemade toys the sleepy village 3 The Yellow Side

On the months leading to the birth of the little one, I made some toys and games for the older one. The idea was that the older one could play with them as a special treat when I couldn’t give him all the attention he wanted.

This is one of my favourites: the sleepy village.

Some days they are a big family, some days they have names. Some days they have been playing in the playground and are very tired. Some days they are not tired at all and don’t want to go to sleep.

There is a lot of role-playing and sometimes other toys are brought in to satisfy the needs of the little people (sometimes they sleep better with a pillow. Apparently).

It is a matching game, as they all have a bit of fabric the colour of their sleeping bag stuck to their “feet”. The shapes and sizes of the little people are all different and they fit the best in their own sleeping bag.

In the end, all the little people go into their little box and sleep.
