Toys R Us - Homestyle

I'm really fortunate to be able to work on a project at Church to help our community through the year. 
This year we decided to get a head start on Christmas.  
We challenged our wonderful ladies to make or buy a doll or toy this year.

Our community has an organization set up to help over 100 local agencies.  It's serviced through churches and volunteers from all over.  So far we've collected over 40 soft toys and dolls.  You might recognize a kitty or some monkeys!

We had a work day where women came and helped tie quilts and make wooden puzzles and matching games.  It was fun to see little kids eying the toys on the table.  Every once in while you'd see a little one wandering around with a doll or two.  

These puzzles are two sided.  
I just scanned a bunch of Golden Book pages that I thought would be interesting for little kids.  

Bought the wood cut and ready to go.  
I love Craft Parts

These matching games are the 
brain child of Caravan Shoppe.  
Their illustrations are so darling.  
Materials:  2" circles from Craft Parts 
Hard Coat Mod Podge 
Olliblocks Matching Set

Many of these items will be filling Salvation Army stockings and numerous agencies in need for children's toys.    

It's only May....I can't wait to see what else comes in to help fill the shelves for Christmas.


  1. Well done! Those monkeys are so sweet!

  2. What a productive day!!! Wish I could have been there to help. I need to make some wooden puzzles for the grand-kiddos. Can't wait to see MORE.
