Time has been flying way too fast when it comes to Penny Pie… but one of the good things about her growing up is that it’s getting a little easier to entertain her. Here are a few new games we have started playing. What’s great about it is that I didn’t need to buy any new toys, we just used whatever we had around the house.
We like just putting random things in a muffin tin. She enjoys taking them out and putting them into different spots. When she picks a particular thing, I explain and show her what it’s for. Her favorite item was probably the magnet – I would drop it and she got a kick of how it stuck to the metal 🙂
My parents, knowing my love for packaging and tins gave me a box of tin cans they had received Christmas goodies in. They were all different shapes and sizes, so Penny Pie and I played a game with her matching all the lids to the appropriate tins. I would help her a couple of times, but if I was patient enough, she could do it on her own.
Do any of you have any games you like playing with your little one?
