Last winter as Naomi and I tried to find indoor activities to pass the time, I found myself carrying a lot of things up and down the stairs from our basement bedroom to my parents’ kitchen. So I found a box and began carrying our playtime items in it. The box has evolved over time, and now includes some of her favorite outdoor activities too.
Naomi is always thrilled to see me reach for her box-of-fun, and dances around eagerly waiting for me to sit it down and begin pulling things out of it. Here are a few items you might want to include in your own Toddler Box-of-Fun!
- Crayons, Coloring Books, and Paper
- Sidewalk Chalk
- Homemade Play-Dough & Tools (Plastic Fork, Spoon, & Cookie Cutter)
- Magnetic Book with Magnets
Can you suggest some other items to include in a Toddler Box-of-Fun?
