25 DIY Toys and Games Projects: Make: technology on your time

Toys_and_games.jpg
One way of living a greener life is to make things rather than rely on Chinese factories. Making toys and games with your family not only allows you to upcycle materials, it also teaches important science lessons.

Make: Technology on Your Time Volume 28 has over 25 projects. I especially like the section on "Toys From Trash".

MAKE Volume 28 hits makers' passion for play head-on with a 28-page special section devoted to Toys and Games, including a toy "pop-pop" steamboat made from a mint tin, an R/C helicopter eye-in-the-sky, and a classic video game console. You'll also build a gravity-powered catapult, a plush toy that interacts with objects around it, and a machine that blows giant soap bubbles. Play time is a hallmark of more intelligent species -- so go have some fun!
