This week I’ve been trying activities from a blog I found to entertain Emma as well as teach her independent playing. The blog that I found this from is called Mama.Papa.Bubba. She always has the most convenient cheap ways to entertain her little girl and I’ve been taking a spin trying out each one!
Today you’ll see Emma putting pipe cleaners in a strainer – here’s Mama’s post on it. All it took was some fun pipe cleaners which are a dollar at the Dollar Store and a strainer which we had on hand.
I showed her how to do one pipe cleaner and then she had a hay day doing the rest of them. After each one she said, “I did it!!”
Near the end she started getting creative and going around the sides!
We even had a celebration when she finished! In the mean time I made lunch with no “distractions or help”. Afterwards she asked if she could take it all out and do it again – um sure!!!! This lasted us an hour. All I could think of was all the things I could get done in an hour with her entertaining herself.
We will be doing this project – A LOT more 🙂
Thank you Mama.Papa.Bubba!!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out her amazing blog for more fun games that you probably have lying around your house 😉
