Boxes for Infants

(Idea from Sarah Kelly)

Materials:

  • Small boxes
  • Dried beans (or any similar thing to rattle inside. Have a different sound inside each box.)
  • Pretty paper or paint
  • Ribbons
  • Clear contact paper

Procedure:

  1. Place the beans inside the box.
  2. Seal the box well.
  3. Cover the box with brightly colored paper or let an older child paint it. (Use non-toxic colors)
  4. Glue on ribbons or stickers.
  5. Cover the boxes with clear contact paper to make them hold up under chewing.
