Playing with the Twins

 Our youngest daughter gave birth to twins in December and it has been wonderful to watch them grow.
 They borrowed some of the ideas that was used for our older grand daughter.
Like this PVC pipe stand to hang rattles, and such, to attract their attention, or accidentally hit and make noise.
We started reading books to them early too.
A mirror was set up for tummy time so they could look at themselves and each other.
And of course we sang lots of songs to them.
 And lately I introduced play trays.
Simple cookie sheets placed in front of them to hold items that may be easily grabbed.
At first they just looked at the items,
but as they developed more movement in their arms they brushed against the items and watched them move.
Items were added, like the tin foil plate, to add more sound when it was hit or moved.
As they continue to grow their coordination improves and they begin to grab some of the items.
