    Default Article: Homemade Toy Town

    Homemade Toy Town
    By Deborah Shelton

    With a few items found around the house, and a little
    imagination, you can make your very own toy town. Once your
    town is built, fill it with your favorite dolls and toy

    1. Yarn: Use yarn to outline streets for toy cars. Roads can be as straight or as winding as you'd like.

    2. Pinecones: "Plant" these trees along the edges of a street or in a park area.

    3. Cardboard Tubes: Form toll bridges and tunnels with these easy-to-find tubes.

    4. Tin Foil: Create lakes and rivers with flat pieces of tin foil.

    5. Cardboard Boxes: Make buildings such as schools, banks and churches from small cardboard boxes.

    6. Magazine Cut-Outs: Glue pictures from magazines onto small cardboard boxes to represent the type of buildings in the town. For example, glue a picture of a store or school onto a box.

    7. Thread Spools: Set these in a park area, to use as tables.

    8. Cotton Balls: Turn your town into a winter wonderland with fluffy puffs of cotton.

    9. Popsicle Sticks: Great materials for building fences and bridges.

    10. Kitchen Scale: Bring into play a small kitchen scale to use as a weigh station for the cars.
