I began saving flip tops lids from our:
- coffee creamer
- salad dressing
- other condiments
- shampoo bottles
- open and close each one
- thread a ribbon through the openings (sorry about the blur, we like to shake them while they are on the ribbon)
- pull them off the ribbon
- stack them
- place other objects inside them
If you try this at home, I would love to hear other ways you and your toddler used flip-top lids, so leave a comment and let me know.
Tip #8: Does your child have a toy he/she struggles to play with (ie. puzzles, shape sorter, etc.)? Try to break it down (in your head) into more simple steps until your child can complete the whole process. For example, instead of focusing on fitting the shapes through the shape sorter hole, first encourage them to match each shape to the correct hole.
