Some projects start off with the hopes of it being a hit and turns out to be a homerun! Some projects I am confident will be a hit and my daughter doesn't GAF. Here are the best DIY projects I made, she liked, and we got the best bang for our buck!

3D COLORING PLAYHOUSE

This playhouse was a massive homerun for these reasons: 1) I got a free box from work, made it into a house and drew a design on it. Super cheap project. 2) My partner and I painted it. #datenight. 3) She played with it for SEVEN months before politely asking me to make a different house for her.

DENIM CRAFT APRON

I wanted to make this apron since she was born and never did until this year. The intention was for her to use it for crafts but she associates aprons with the kitchen. She requests her apron every Sunday when we make pancakes together. #winning.

CRAFT BOX

By far theeasiest DIYbecause I just needed to buy the box and stuff it with craft supplies. I had most of the stuff already so cost was really low. My daughter grabs this box after she comes home everyday and entertains herself for up to 30 MINUTES!

PLAY KITCHEN

This kitchen is a bit of cheat since I didn't technically make it at all. It is worthy of mentioning because if you are good with woodworking or know someone who is, a play kitchen will entertain the little one for a really long time. This kitchen is also very popular when other kids come over for playdates.

FELT SUSHI

Of course, if you have a play kitchen, you need to fill it with play food. The sushi I made was super easy and she liked having some different kinds of food. As of late, she likes to bring sushi, pizza, and cupcakes to her pretend picnic.
