Washing Basket Puzzle

DSC_0097Age: 1-2

Skills: twisting, turning, thinking and problem solving.

Time to make: 5 mins

What you will need:

  • Washing Basket
  • String
  • Selection of toys

How to make:

Cut a long piece of string. Tie it onto the basket and weave across, back and forth, up and down.

Tie it off to finish.

To make the basket more difficult add another piece of string and toys of different sizes.

For younger toddlers, start with balls and then progress to toys that are strange shapes. For example, I added an octopus whose legs often got stuck on the string. My munchkin had to work out how to twist the toy to get it out.
