Simple Baby Play Idea Using Recycled Containers


We've all been there.  It's some special occasion and us parents hand over a perfectly wrapped present to our little one only to have the child open it and start playing with an empty box in the corner instead!

It may be tempting to throw away that empty box or empty coffee, yogurt, and/or cheese containers, too.. but DON'T! You just never know when you'll need them again, ya know?!  

I usually keep a stash for just this reason, my little one loves Tower Building with those old recyclables!!

Simple Baby Play Idea

I pulled out about five containers and Baby Boy (17mos) had a great time building towers and whipping his arm full force to knock it over!  

And bonus when activities can reinforce some type of skill like spacial recognition and coordination like this one did!
