As most parents will agree with me, it seems that our kiddos often derived most fun out of the most inexpensive toys. And then, there is the use of some creativity / imagination and some of the common items lying around the house.Cardboard boxes, old wallets and blankets, just to name a few.
On this particular hot and humid afternoon, it was impossible to take a walk in the neighbourhood. Yet, we have exhausted the TV, play-yard, blowing bubbles, books, and Anya's regular toys. I was running out of ideas to keep The Tod occupied when I eyed an empty laundry basket. The laundry basket became our saviour for the next hour or so.
At first, Anya went into the basket while I pushed her around. Next, The Furkid went in while Anya and I push her. Lastly, out came The Furkid and in went her random stuff toys (including Larry, the cucumber that came in the form of a boardbook). It was great! Both she and I had tonnes of fun!
