An orange from the fruit bowl. Wormie. My Elk beads. iPhone. Rice in a small container*. Crocheted teether. Fluff from the Flokati rug. Wooden coaster. Sophie. Mama's hair. The wooden rattle with beads and a bell ($4 from the local oppie).
These are a few of your favourite things.
I've been thinking a lot about play and toys lately. Heuristic Play and Treasure Baskets. Inspired by a post I read a while ago and bookmarked, and also this lady's recent post. Looking at Saskia's preferred playthings, more than half are everyday objects and only a handful are 'toys'. So I'm sure there's something to this.
Now that she has been comfortably sitting up for a while I think it'd be a great time to introduce a Treasure Basket. I'm actually a wee bit excited about the treasure hunt for objects too.
...oh, and speaking of toys and playthings, how sweet are these little guys in Ms Milky's new Etsy shop?
*ok, it's a unused specimen jar!
