Similar to a recent game where I wrapped up old toys for Veronika, today I delighted her with little treasures she could unwrap from tin foil.
The exciting element here of course is the shiny foil, which might just fascinate your toddler more than the toys inside!
Then I showed her a sneak peak of what was inside.
She needed a little help with the unwrapping, but looked so proud when she reached the treasures (er, old toys).
Of course then she was busy with the toys; what’s old is new again when presented in this different context!
You can extend the fun by crumpling up the discarded foil into tight balls, which then become balls to shoot into a basket.
Unfortunately the game was short-lived thereafter because Veronika thought it was very funny to put the foil in her mouth, especially once she realized this earned a firm “no.” Hopefully you and your toddler can play a bit longer!
