The New Toy - That Keeps On Giving!

Ike gets into everything. I mean EVERYTHING! He got into the craft box and made a big mess of the craft sticks. I started thinking about what container to put these in. Hehe...this time I tricked him into picking his mess up and Sam helped.

I just grabbed a ball jar and put 3 slits in the lid. They love it!
Yay! They did it! Finally picked up their mess!
 This activity amazed me. They must have played with it 5 or 6 times in the same day. Thanks to this jar I was able to get housework done.

It is great for Sam's coordination. It will also be great for Ike to learn to match colors, learn his colors and counting. I do need to be careful the boys don't put these in their mouths. They have been in the craft box for years and they came already painted.
