Lately, Eli has been having too much fun getting into the two cabinets that are not locked in the kitchen, and pulling books off the bookshelves in the living room. So, I finally put together some more busy bag type activities for him to keep him out of my stuff. Almost all of these activities/toys were made from stuff already around the house.
Pipe Cleaner Poke: Simply putting some pipe cleaners into a clean Parmesan cheese container creates a fun toy. Big brother took his turn enjoying it too.
Cupcake Sorter. I've been keeping the cardboard tubes from toilet paper and paper towel for weeks now, but don't really have anything to do with them. This was my first use. This one and the last idea came from here.
Can you tell he's enjoying them?
