Last month, I realized that I primarily write about Wild Thing and feature toddler play ideas, so I decided to feature some of the simple play activities I do with Caterpillar. He recently turned 1 and most of the activities we do can be done with simple items you probably already have at home.
The post was so popular that I decided to make it a monthly series, so here is my September post on Baby Play - again featuring items you probably have at home. Most of these items are things we typically would recycle, but we have now turned them into toys.
I am taking a brief break today from writing about Hunger and ways to get involved during Hunger Action Month, which has been the focus of all of my posts in September to share these simple, entertaining activities for little ones.
|I stuck paintbrushes in the egg carton that he could then put the empty spools on.|
|He also likes putting milk jug lids and playdough toys in the egg carton.|
|Another hit is putting the pipe cleaners in an empty milk jug.|
|He also paints with water.|
|And loves scooping and splashing water.|
