Thanks to Santa and family, Q-ball has been busy exploring this week!
First of all, we have a new mini-treasure basket! I've placed this basket in one of the last corners of our house that was not very friendly to Q-ball- we were constantly having to redirect her to other venues. So, a little clean-up (which I will discuss next week) and this treasure basket have eliminated the need for redirection.
Here's the basket:
Yarn, colorful rattle, natural teether, homemade sensory cloth (with colored tags and two different materials) a stone, cookie cutter, cork, and a ribbon. So far, her favorites are the cork (great for teething!) and the rattle.
Also, Grandma made us activity squares! Using felt, she made different squares that allow Q-ball to explore different tasks and senses. We have a zipper, buttons, velco, a pocket, mirror, and book with colors. Currently, I have only given Q-ball the mirror, book, and pocket. She loves them!
