Hello!

I have been hit with a terrible cold in the last few days that I couldn’t take the 10 months old out. Today I had been thinking how to entertain her as she seems to lose interest in her toys very quickly. Then I had an idea, I had few empty plastic bottles which I half filled with different items such as rice, cereals, pasta etc. Closed the lids tightly and gave them to her to play. She was delighted with the noise the bottles made and happily played with them for a long time. We both sat down and roll the bottles to each other’s and had fun together.

  • It is often the simple things that our kids love, mostly it’s just to spend time with us. Mine have hours of fun with empty cardboard boxes
