|"Baking" Treasure Basket|
- Wooden stirring spoon
- Pot holder
- Mixing bowl & lid
- Paper muffin liners
- Foil stars
- Measuring cups (1 glass, 1 plastic)
- 2 Measuring spoons in individual sizes
- I added a couple more items after this picture was taken:
- A large metal stirring spoon
- One of those food mashers, metal with a wooden handle
|You can see the masher, and the spoon that I added here.|
He was so into what he was doing that he didn't even notice Mommy taking pictures!
What I like about these baskets is that while Kendrick is able to explore these items and learn about his senses, I am also able to sit down and play with him, and teach him while I do. We discuss which items are bigger & smaller. We made music with the spoons & things. And we (I) talked about the differences in the textures and what each thing is used for in the kitchen.
This is definitely NOT something I will leave him unsupervised with. He still likes to explore with his mouth quite a bit, and has come up with very creative ways to use some of the things that could be dangerous. So, I recommend if you are thinking of making something like this to make sure to monitor your children closely with these!! :)
