Fun Ideas for Toddlers!

So here is a post that I have been meaning to post for a while and it will be one of a couple I do today! 🙂 I wanted to post a few ideas that are very Montessori and perfect for the active toddlers that what to know everything! The first thing that I did was put together a Baby Treasure Basket for a friend of mine who is going to be having a baby soon! I think that it turned out really cool, and I think that has all sorts of things that any baby would love to explore! I used all natural materials and no plastic or polyester. The idea of a Baby Treasure Basket is that you offer an assortment of objects with different textures, sounds, and colors so that your baby can explore them at his leisure! Most babies will sit with a basket for a long time. If you want more information on Baby Treasure Baskets you can look here.

The Basket included:
~ Books
~ Handmade Wool Felt Booties
~ Wooden Spoons
~ Wooden Egg
~ Bird Teething Ring
~ Wet Felted Wool Ball
~ Sensory Rock Jar
~ Wooden Teething Ring with Silk Ribbon
~ Seashell
~ Wooden Peg Person
~  Pinecone
~ Jingle Pillow
The other thing that I made for Pup in the past few weeks is a rainbow peg person matching game! I got the idea from Chasing Cheerios. Pup was so excited that she couldn’t wait for me to finish them! 🙂 She has had a lot of fun with them and I think that it is a really great (and inexpensive) way to introduce kids to matching!
