  1. You can make a lot of toys at home such as little boats, kites, daisy chains, water wheels, whistles, spinning jinnies, barrows, Jack in the box, and wee gollie wogs out of yarn.
    I think making a gollie wog in the nicest. You must have two or three colours of yarn.
    You tie the head and then the neck and you get a wee bunch of wool and tie the two ends then put it through the middle of the wee man and when that is in, you tie below that again then the two feet and get a needle and yarn and make the eyes and nose.
