This week: Treasure baskets
This is probably old news for most of you but I have only just discovered treasure baskets for babies. I had heard of them but didn't really know what they were. Earlier this week we were at a local playgroup where they had a treasure basket out in the area for babies and my daughter loved it. They had put all kinds of random objects with different textures inside a basket and she was fascinated by them.
I am now inspired to create my own at home. A quick search online has given me lots of ideas of items to put insde a basket and of course these random objects can be easily found around the home or outside.
Here are a couple of blog posts with photos and suggestions of treasure basket contents in case you too fancy making one for your baby:

NurtureStore - Treasure Baskets for Babies
Have you made a treasure basket for any of your children when they were babies? Were there any particular objects that you found they enjoyed more than others?
