Several years ago Lisa Kamer found that her puppies were always able to chew through almost any doggie chew toy. So she created a new kind of toy out of strips of braided fleece. Her dog, Leo, loved it. She watched as he chewed, sucked, threw, and slept on the soft toy.
The toys were simple to make. Lisa decided to see if children would enjoy making them—and they did. The first group of children who made the toys were students at the Perkins School for the Blind. They loved the toy project and sold the finished toys at a highly successful school fundraiser.
Making “Knots of Fun” is a great project for any school or organization looking for a creative way to engage students and raise money at the same time.
