I’m supposed to be starting a Tipid Toy Tuesday post series, then I realized that it’s already Wednesday! Let’s just say Tipid Toy, then 🙂
So I’ve posted about our Tipid Toys before, which are everyday/household objects that we use as toys for the twins. Since I usually go for the
lazy fuss-free approach, these “toys” require minimum set-up/preparation and hardly cost a thing, but have been proven to be useful in entertaining the twins and even teaching them a thing or two.
Our Tipid Toy for today is reused plastic materials (I can’t really even say recycled, much less upcycled because I didn’t really do anything to them). See, because of my mother-in-law, we’re something of a pack rat household. Everything that can conceivably be reused gets carefully cleaned and hidden away. Our kitchen closets tend to get clogged, but like today, it sometimes pays off. Setting up playtime for the twins was a simple matter of pulling out measuring scoops, yogurt containers, and an empty ice cream container from the kitchen shelves.
Then it’s pretend cooking/eating time!
Sorry for the blurry photos 😦
Been getting a lot of mileage out of this play dough. Not bad for a first try at making it.
As an aside, let me just say: they love their Hacienda Macalauan yogurt. Hindi ito product placement ha, they just really like it.
So there you go: Tipid Toy incorporating pretend play and a bit of fine and gross motor skills practice!
