Earlier this week on my Instagram stories I shared a peek at the busy boxes I put together for Flora to play with this week! The idea is that filling them up on Sunday before the week began would buy me a little bit of time to get more done on my lengthy to-do list. We actually didn’t even get through all the boxes! So I have 1 to use for next week. I also plan to rotate toys through these, to keep things new and interesting for Flora: Think balls, cars, puzzles etc.
Here’s an overview of what I put in the 5 boxes for her this week:
Monday: Easter eggs with little sensory toys inside.
Tuesday: Cotton balls + pom poms with various recycled cardboard rings & toilet paper rolls.
Wednesday: Cut up felt pieces of various sizes and silicone cupcake liners (this was a hit).
Thursday: Hid farm animals in crumpled up brown paper.
Friday: Wrapped ribbon around clothes pins and put in balls that had previously been put away.
