It's a Numbers Game

When we casually started introducing Nathan to the alphabet a while back, I quickly realized that numbers came more naturally to him. 

So when I saw this project in Growing Up Sew Liberated: Making Handmade Clothes and Projects for Your Creative Child I knew I had to make it.  


It was a perfect choice for the boy, who can now count to five on his own and knows all of the numerals, thanks to this toy.  Plus, I was happy to make something for his room, especially because I'm making so many things for the new baby's room.




And sometimes it's just darn fun to clip the numbers onto the stick in any old order and play the way a two-and-a-half-year old boy should.

  1. It looks like he is really enjoying it! I saw that project in the book and wondered if my daughter would like it... she might still be a bit too young for it though. Yours is beautiful!
