I’m at it again…recycling things to give Lucy something to play with. I started saving the lids from the baby food squeeze pouches so that I could use them to work with Ayub on his colors.
We’ve done some sorting and some patterns with him, but he wasn’t really all that impressed. Of course, we also always have on hand an empty baby wipes container. I don’t particularly like Huggies brand wipes, but I do like the opening in their container.
I poured out the lids, opened the wipes container and let Lucy stick them in the hole. If I had to describe Lucy’s favorite activity, I’d have to say “putting things into other things,” so she loved this.
Overall, this was a pretty short-lived activity. I tried again the next day, but she’d pretty much lost interest. Maybe her days of putting things into other things are almost over, but no loss since there was no financial investment. Although it didn’t have the staying the power of the pom-pom container, it was a win in my book.
