Best Baby Gifts :: Nesting Cubes
Here is a free pdf tutorial on how to make the most adorable set of nesting cubes, that is an educational baby toy and that would make an ideal baby shower gift.
Soft blocks with big bold patterns have to be every new mom’s delight as blocks are a top educational toy.
We absolutely adore those set of nesting cubes. Apparently the fabrics were the ones babies actually preferred. While I think they are pretty, something educational is missing in this version, and I’d like them to be taken a few steps further.

What to do instead, with the baby in mind:
1. Choose bright colors, bold patterns and high contrasting images.
2. Use them to educate your child and teach pattern recognition. For example, make different animal appliques on each sides in strongly contrasting colors. Of Use the numbers 0-9 as applique. Of, you can make an alphabet version.
3. Personally, I’d make them into little houses. As the child grows, dolls or cars will appear into his /her life, and what better than to have a full street of houses ready to set the stage?
4. Safety first. Your baby will for sure chew on the flaps that are extended to each block to enable them to be lifted out of the next ones. Make sure that these flaps are securely attached and are chew-proof.
