Baby in a Box!
Over the years that we have presented Lapsit, we have purchased hundreds of dollars worth of educational toys for babies. The favorite form of entertainment this week at Lapsit were two empty cardboard boxes. The interaction between the parents and children illustrates that although the toys are colorful and educational, simple things can be made into grand toys. Pots and pans in a low lying cupboard with a wooden spoon can become musical instruments for your baby band.
We also have lovely books about boxes. One of my favorites is Not a Box, by Antoinette Portis. Next Monday we will still have all the high priced toys but we will also have some boxes!
