DIY Tutorial: Teether Toy
What could be more fun for a parent, than a toy that is both functional and relieving for their teething child?! This teether toy rattle meets so many different developmental stages for your precious littles. From bright colored, chewable beads, to natural beech wood rings that create a lovely rattling sound, this entire toy is such a sensory gift! And best of all, it's easy to make and customize.
- 1 x 60” white regular cord
- 9 x 19mm watermelon round beads
- 1 x 19mm salmon round beads
- 2 x natural wood rings – BEECH 60mm (12mm Thickness)
STEPS:1. Burn one end of the string – this prevents fraying when you begin beading.
2. Begin stringing your beads in preferred order of colour.
3. Once all of the beads are strung, slide the wood rings onto the beaded cord.
4. Knot the cord tightly between two beads. Ensure that when you begin knotting, you have kept the beads on the cord as tightly together as possible. Pull the knot tight. Then double knot for extra safety.
5. Cut Excess string near the knot.
6. Slightly burn both of the snipped ends and carefully push them into the knot until hardened and firm. This will keep the knot fused together.
7. Pull one of the beads over the knot to hide it.
8. Just like that, your teether toy is completed and ready for you little one to enjoy. The strong beech rings provide an extra element of fun as they rattle against each other! We are sure it will be your child’s favorite toy right away!
