Peek-a-boo Bucket!

Everything can be a toy.

 Our empty book bucket is now a wonderful toddler hiding spot. 


We often use it as a drum and a pedestal too.

Here are some other easy, toddler friendly ideas for fun with regular household items without regard to their intended purpose:

  1. Collar Stays
  2. Yogurt Containers (plus some other ideas from Creative with Kids)
  3. Magazines (from A Mom with a Lesson Plan)
  4. Newspaper (from hands on: as we grow)
  5. Plastic Cups (from The Imagination Tree)
Sometimes the funnest activities come about all on their own, like Zel's bucket peek-a-boo game or this obstacle course from A Mom with a Lesson Plan.

Has your child discovered a new use for any of your seemingly boring household items?
