Baobao's Activity Time: 'Rough And Smooth' Treasure Basket
One of my favourite activities for Baobao are treasure baskets. She'll be given a collection of everyday items, selected around a theme, and then she explores them, with minimal input from me. This particular treasure basket was based around touch and featured rough and smooth items.
When we did this treasure basket, Baobao was very interested in how objects go together, especially objects that fit inside other objects. She went straight for the straw and hair roller and threaded the roller on to the straw. She later went on to explore other things that the straw would fit into.
