Fun with Straws | Simple Toddler Play

Hi there!
A short and sweet post today.
Remember this post about simple baby and toddler play ideas? Little Miss and I discovered that my straws wouldn't fit through the little holes of my colander. Well look what I found in the shed! A little canister from IKEA was just the thing I needed for some fun straw play.

You could turn this into a fun game of kerplunk for older kiddies by just adding some pom poms :)

And I couldn't help but sharing this little screen shot. A small milestone in the world of blogging - but a pleasant surprise when I logged on to 'blogger' this evening.

Until next time (which won't be very long I hope)


  1. This is great for fine motor skills! I love the idea of making your own kerplunk game - my daughter would love that!

  2. Hi Emma! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. This is such a great simple idea for little people. Love the ideas that can usually happen with things you already have in your kitchen :)

  3. Its a great montessori inspired activity for children. I hope my students will like this game. I usually include DIY ideas in my montessori school.

  4. thanks for this usefull article, waiting for this article like this again.
