entertain a toddler? Answered

 I want to make a gift for my twin nephews that are coming down for the holidays.They are approx. a yr. and a 1/2 old twin boys of parents that are obsessed with health and DIY. I have a small budget..... like 10 dollars is on the expensive side.However I have a lot of things and art supplies to use and recycle.I need to know about what  their age group likes, and where they are mentally. Any project ideas knowledge or advice?I was thinking something like a game that brings the family together to play.

I once made a puzzle for my nephew when he was about 2.  I had few tools but needed only a way to drill a small hole and a coping saw.  I got a piece of 1/2 plywood about 12" square sanded it smooth.  Drew 4-5 simple shapes and cut the shapes out.  Glued a piece of strong cardboard on the back and painted each hole a different kid safe color.  then painted the piece that fit in the hole the same color.  then varnished it all with food grade varnish.  Josh is 32 now and still has the puzzle.  Played with a lot.
