Boxes and wooden spoons!
Funny isn't it - how you can have all the flashy light up toys in the world and what do children want to play with? - Wooden spoons and boxes!
10 month olds favourite thing to play with is this colander filled with all sorts of kitchen utensils! He spins them round inside it to watch the colours reflect on the side. He takes them all out one by one and inspects them, then puts them back in again with a bang!
With this old box we spend a morning playing cafes! We turned it in to an oven. Wee one already has a real toy oven but she was very enthusiastic about this one. It became a microwave too!
You really don't need flashy toys to keep children amused!
