Last week we were learning about Letter C, so I threw some cotton balls in a small bin and let them go to town. I thought that they would be bored with it, but it turns out this was a hit! Children's imaginations are just amazing! They pretended they were making ice cream and different types of food. I gave them spoons and they practiced taking a cotton ball out with the spoon. They played in this box for a good hour before they got bored. This is a great, easy and cheap idea to keep them entertained!
