(Idea from Sarah Kelly)
- Small boxes
- Dried beans (or any similar thing to rattle inside. Have a different sound inside each box.)
- Pretty paper or paint
- Clear contact paper
- Place the beans inside the box.
- Seal the box well.
- Cover the box with brightly colored paper or let an older child paint it. (Use non-toxic colors)
- Glue on ribbons or stickers.
- Cover the boxes with clear contact paper to make them hold up under chewing.
