The snowflakes are now ten months old, and cruising. With the weather being so cold we haven't been able to spend much time outside, so we have been trying new things to keep little hands and minds occupied.
A few weeks ago I started doing a treasure basket for the kids where I remove the rest of their "usual" toys from babyland, and when they get up from their nap, they find a basket waiting for them to explore.
Here is what we have in today's treasure basket:
Puffs container full of colorful ribbons
Large knob puzzle pieces for little hands
2 Red Solo Cups filled with Melissa and Doug Wooden toys and a B Toys teether
2 Discovery Bottles with red ribbon, multi-colored puffs, pasta, and a shimmery pipe cleaner. They really love shaking and twirling these to see what is inside.
Make sure lids are secure/glued.
Mini Tupperware with fun treasures inside
Tupperware full of bright wood blocks
Bottle with fabric and socks for little hands to pull through hole in lid
Red wooden ball with a hole
