Fun with Babies - 10 months

Thought it would be fun to change it up a bit and do a post about what we have been up to.

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.

Board Book

Fabric Rattle

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

Plastic lid.

Finished product. 

Let's see what they think...
