Altoids Tin Toys

If you are a parent of a child under the age of 5 you know how difficult it can by to keep them occupied while you’re out. These tiny Altoids tins are perfect for a small on the go toy.

To make these all you really need is empty Altoids tins and small toys. Maybe a strong glue like E6000 or hot glue if you want to stick anything in place ( I used hot glue for these two).

I had to dig through all of these Legos to find a few little guys I thought Wyatt would like.

This is what I found, and the best part is that you can change them out to something new whenever you would like.

For the Lego tin I only glued the large rectangle Lego to the lid.

Now for the pony bed I needed a little more glue. I started by gluing the fleece to the inside of the tin.

Next I glued a piece of green fabric to the inside of the lid (for grass). After that I used twine to make a small basket and glued it onto the green fabric. I decided that ponies love apples so we needed to add a few little fleece apples to the basket.

Now your toys are ready for fun. I found a small pillow in Echo’s Barbie house for the pony bed and cut a small piece of pink fleece to cover her up. Now she is snug as a bug.
