These are two lists for toddler activities both of which can be found under homeschooling on my pinterest page.
So first we tried an idea about using a soda bottle with the top cut off and a hole for retrieval, that didn't work to well. He just wanted to dump them back out the way they came not reach in and get them.
He thought is was fun for a little while, but I thought we could make something better.
We used an old puffs canister, and this added the element of opening and closing the lid as well. This was a big hit.
