Crochet Soft and Stackable Lego Bricks

When my boys were small, Legos were one of their favorite things to play with. This inspired me to create these giant, soft stackable bricks. If you make enough of these you can even build a fort out of them!

These crochet bricks are made using flat panels to form a square bottom. For the Lego ‘nubs’ on top, you will crochet in the round – almost like you’re crocheting a very tiny hat. Lastly, you’ll sew them all together and stuff them with polyfill.

Citrus Fruit Puzzle Balls

These fruit crochet puzzle balls remind me of those chocolate oranges that you can find around Christmas time. I’m not a huge fan of how they taste, but they sure are fun to break apart!

These would make a really great toy for smaller children to help with fine motor skills and coordination. They would also learn how to identify different citrus fruits. Make these in yellow for lemons, green for limes, pink for grapefruit, and orange for oranges.
