Who knew that hours of fun were just a few minutes away? Now that baby has matured enough to [somewhat] avoid putting everything into her mouth we’ve been able to expand our kitchen creations a little bit. Colored rice is so simple and she literally played for 45 minutes. That is a long time for a baby to sit still.
I love to set up play areas for Coco like this and just sit back and watch her play without any interruption. Being able to pick up, move, and sort small objects is an important skill for babies: these dumping activities help to develop fine motor skills in toddlers.
Of course you know your children better than I do, but only do activities like these under close supervision and if you feel they are ready for them.
