Upcycled Presents Activity

15 - 30 minutes of fun Mommy time!

“Upcycled

Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers will love playing with these "gifts" from Mommy!




Materials

You'll need: plastic containers; small blocks or toys that do not pose a choking hazard; and tissue paper or newspaper.




Step 1

“Upcycled

Gather empty plastic containers, and fill them with small toys.

If an object can be dropped through a toilet paper roll, it is TOO SMALL for this activity!




Step 2

“Upcycled

Wrap plastic containers in newspaper or tissue paper.




Step 3

“Upcycled

Let kids open their "gifts."




Cleanup

“Upcycled

Once playtime is over, all of the "gifts" can head straight for the dishwasher or recycling bin.

This makes a great activity for when babies want to come to play.

(And you'd rather all of your other toys stay out of their mouths).
