Easy, simple baby toy!

All around me it seems that there are babies who need Christmas presents, babies turning one, and well my own baby always can use a new fun activity while I’m trying to make dinner.  This is the perfect present for all of those instances.  Its super easy to make and super, repetitive fun for little ones.


Gather an empty kleenex box (of course there are tons of these around this time of year!) and some scrap material.  Cut the scraps into three or four inch wide strips.  I like to have a variety of colors and textures to make it  more interesting for baby.  Shove all of the scraps into the kleenex box.  That’s it!


Now hand it to your favorite baby for tons of fun with pulling out and putting in all of the scraps. Hours of joy from the simplest thing ever!

    Watch out what you may be teaching them. Next you might find real tissues scattered about the house.

    What a good idea! I can’t even count how many tissue boxes we wasted when my daughter grew a fascination in emptying them!

    Love it! We love fabric play 🙂 And I love the idea of using the used tissue box! I think I have three of them in my recycling right now! I should grab them quick! I had to include this in a round up of materials to save/recycle for the kids to play with! http://www.handsonaswegrow.com/2012/02/34-recyclables-to-upcycle-for-kids.html
