This project might require a bit of time, but the results are worth it — you can can finally transform those cheap plastic toys into something timeless…and meaningful (like the toys that we used to get as kids!). If you have older kids, this is a real gem of a project that will give them a sense of pride — they’re Santa’s elves building toys and making the littlest tots smile.
