toddler dump and fill


Though this isn't something that holds either H's or F's attention for long these days, it kept them busy for long stretches when they were toddlers. I thought I'd share some of our favorites.

What you need:
  • Containers
    • Cheese shaker
    • Sugar container
    • Empty coffee cans or other cylinders with plastic tops
    • Empty milk or other jug
  • Fillers
    • Pompoms
    • Chenille sticks
    • Large play coins
    • Straws in different colors/lengths
    • Stretchy snakes
    • Craft sticks
Some of our favorite containers
This one is nice because it is only semi-transparent

Just fill and dump! You can make a sorting game out of it (sort the pompoms by color, or straws by length, etc) or give your child a variety of objects and ask them to sort by which items fit and which are too big.
