Se7en Make Mini Hobby Horses…

Sometimes I just need to sit with my little people and make things… well this weekend we needed to do something with those sweet outgrown socks that are just too cute to get rid of. We saw some hobby horses a while back and my little ones thought they were quite magical – so mini-hobby horses it was…

You will need:

  • Socks
  • Wooden Spoons
  • Felt/fabric scraps
  • Wool Scraps
  • Buttons
  • Stuffing
  • Scissors
  • Glue

So we searched through the felt and played in the button box…

  1. What a great idea, they look fab and the girls all look very pleased with them. I’ll have to try this at home, I found my son using a paint brush as a hobby horse the other day.

  2. Hay Cheryl, I think we all had quite a bit of fun making them and days later they are still the number one toy!!! Hope you are all having a fun week!!!

  3. Hi Meaghan, This were so easy for my little kidlets to make and they did a really good job of it!!! Hope your have a fun time creating!!!

  4. Hi there “The Monko” These were so fun and hopefully they will suffice for the real live broomstick size hobby horses!!! So far so good, they have had such a lot of fun playing with them!!!

  5. Awesome, loved them too. And I feel the same way about those cute outgrown socks! We left a horse or two behind in the move, and these would be a wonderful alternative.
