3rd of our activity series is a simple yet practical life activity with Christmas décor items. It looks simple to us but is very challenging, engaging and satisfying for those little scientists! It is so much fun for them to do this over and over again. And you will see how they discover new ways to play with the same setup. This setup in many ways works as a treasure basket as well and encourages heuristic play for babies and toddlers.
