For Christmas I made my granddaughter a Treasure Basket.
A Treasure Basket is a container filled with things you would find around your house or at a thrift store.
The basket provides your child with an opportunity to discover and explore.
This first treasure basket contained a stubby paper towel holder, that I found at a thrift store, and a variety of rings.
The rings are made of plastic or wood or metal.
And there are two of each.
She spent sometime playing and trying out different ways to handle the rings
and the stubby holder.
It turns out that it is a great instrument for banging and swinging around.
She even discovered that some of the rings make a great musical instrument.
Each month I will change the items in the basket.
This will allow new explorations but also limit how many play things she has in her home.
