Give a toddler a box of tissues or baby wipes and you can be sure that within seconds they end up all over the floors. I know you know what I’m talking about – hahaha.
With this in mind I’ve made a tugging box. It’s so simple to make at home and it will have your little one entertained and learning through play in no time.
- Cardboard box
- Various lengths of ribbon, strips of felt and/or pipe cleaners
- Sticky tape
- Paint (optional)
- Puncture holes into a box and paint
- Thread various lengths of ribbon through two holes and tie knots at the ends. Use a pipe cleaner (as shown above) to help with threading.
- Seal box with tape
Cause and Effect
Investigation & Exploration
Children often like to investigate to know why and how something works. I chose to satisfy Possum’s curiosity and allow her to see what was happening within the box at the conclusion of this activity.
Does your toddler like to pull at things?
