First of all, here is how to make a wooden toy. This particular project will take a while, so make sure you find some free time to work on it. You will need: A shoe box or wooden box, a drill, a small hacksaw, paint (colours are your choice, but only choose three or four), more wood, wood glue, and a wooden cog. If you don’t have some of these things you can use thick cardboard instead. First, drill three holes in your box, one in each side, and one on the top. Line them up so that your cam doesn’t tilt out of balance. Cut a piece of wood to fit through your holes as well as the hole in the cam, and leave a bit extra at both sides. Slide it through, with the cam right in the middle underneath the hole in the top. Cut another piece, this time so it reaches the cog and sticks out from the top hole. Glue the cam in place with wood glue, but make sure to leave the follower (the second piece of wood) as it is. Next, start to construct your wooden toy. You could choose to make an animal, or a boat, or if you have used multiple cams, a caterpillar or person. Glue it together with wood glue, and attach it to the top of the follower. Paint the whole exterior of your project, leave it to dry, and your amazing wooden toy is complete!
