Lately I feel like my son (16 months) has NOTHING to do. He already is quite the mama's boy and always wants me to play with him, however lately I feel like anything I offer him he refuses. Of course his toys are just not good enough and the kitchen appliances are all of a sudden boring to him.
So instead of rushing out the door to the nearest toy store, I decided that he needs more "real-life" toys right now. Something to keep his interest and something to use his senses.
I decided to create a few inexpensive texture bins.
So to begin, here are some tools he can use to play with the contents in the bin: shovel, pails, scoopers, etc.
And that's it! Easy and cheap: two words I like. :)
I am excited to try this out on Owen tomorrow morning. I'm going to first let him explore and then I'll step in to help him find new ways to use his texture bins. I will keep you updated on how it goes and when I end up changing the contents in the bins. Here's to made up "toys"!
