Have you ever walked into a room and quickly realized that your child has pulled out every single baby wipe from the wipes container??? Or how about going to the bathroom and seeing the entire contents of the toilet paper roll strewn on the floor???
Sound familiar? Yeah…me too. There’s something about pulling these common household items that is absolutely enchanting to a wee one! Or perhaps it’s just the fact that they know they’re being mischievous. ;)
This activity allows your child to pull to their heart’s content…without wasting anything and with much less mess!
Here’s what you’ll need: an empty wipes container and a few long, thin strips of scrap fabric.
|1. Neatly lay the piece(s) of fabric in the wipes container.|
|2. Pull the top piece through the opening and then shut the top.|
|3. Let your little one press the “button” to open the tab and then begin pulling out the fabric.|
|Big Brother decided to use the pieces of fabric as scarves to wave in the air while Little Brother drank his milk.|
|“I’ve got to be a man like Daddy.” Apparently, wearing a tie is a rite of passage for manhood in the eyes of Big Brother.|
My friend Crystal also said that her 20-month old little boy loves putting his toys in the wipes containers…especially the Huggies kind that has the rubber gripper!
