What kind of toys do your children enjoy best?
My son seems to prefer homemade toys. It's frustrating when I've spent a lot of money on a "proper" toy, and he's not at all interested in it! I think (for now) I'm done buying toys. When he turns 1 in September, I think we will buy him a ride-y kind of thing and a wooden pull-along train, and that's it.
Have any good ideas for homemade toys and games?
Here's a picture of my son playing with a homemade light box. It's Christmas lights inside a plastic storage container. I got the idea from http://playathomemom3.blogspot.com/. He's too young to realize the potential of this toy, though.
