DIY Pull Sleigh for Simple Toddler Fun

Nothing like using what you have around your house to create ever new “toys” for some simple toddler playtime. Here I added an easy ribbon handle to turn a basket into a toddler pull sleigh and watched as it became the new favorite toy in the house.

And one of the best parts? When she tires of the sleigh, it needn’t enter the graveyard of forgotten and ill-conceived toys. It can just go back to holding Legos on the shelf.

Here are some photos showing how it’s been used:

We’re continuing to get mileage out of this pull sleigh. Since these photos were taken, she’s also used the sleigh for dragging around her snack and sippy cup, shoes, random bits of household stuff, and, of course, toys.
