Made by Mommy: A box guitar

Guitar toy

Sam is really in to guitars these days. There’s a guitar playing rabbit that he thinks is too cool in one of his favourite books. After seeing a real guitar at a friends house a few weeks back though, his interest really spiked, so one afternoon, we made a cute little DIY version.

For the past few weeks I’ve been hanging on to cardboard and other materials that we can re-purpose in to fun DIY toy ideas. Pinterest is awash with great ideas for transforming cardboard in to handmade toys.

We used the sweet shoe box guitar as our model and then just kind of winged it with the materials we had to hand. It took about 20 minutes to make, and Sam thinks it’s pretty cool. He’s fond of lying it on the ground to pluck the strings :)
