Research/ Inspiration

  • At 6 months, the RL baby would be 26" or approx 2" in 1:12.
  • At 2yrs, it would be 34 RL inches or just under 3" (1:12).
  • At 4 yrs the RL size is 40" or just under 3-1/2".
  • At 6, the sizes are 45" & just under 4";
  • at 8 it is50" & just over 4"

 

Tips/Hints

 

Ideas about what is needed for these projects

  • Baby rattle -  Hobby stores sell the smallest plastic googley 'eyes' with a pastel or primary colored bead in them.  The tiny ones are only 1/8" in diameter.  First, glue 2 of the "eyes" together, back to back and set aside to dry.  Next, make the handle.  Find a fancy-handled toothpick or plastic skewer and paint the fancy end any color/colors you want. Let dry. Cut off the sharp end so the fancy end is about 3/8" long, just where you stopped painting.  Make sure to make a flat cut so your "eyes" will stay glued. Glue the "rattle" to the end of the handle and you have a baby rattle that actually rattles. Cool huh?
