Frugal Fun. Toddler Spaghetti Craziness.
Um, yes. That is a ton of spaghetti on my kitchen floor. I was cleaning out my pantry and came across some very old spaghetti noodles that weren't suitable to eat.
So instead of throwing them away I thought I would present them to my toddler in a big bowl to see what he would do.
I got this idea from a blog post somewhere. The blogger gave her kids an old bag of flour to play with outside. I remember the picture of her kids covered in flour. They had a great time.
At first I helped him break the noodles in half. Then he started putting them into a small box. Then into a gallon ziploc bag.
Not only did he get in some good sensory play he was thoroughly entertained for a long time, and I got some good pictures to show the grandmothers!
So if you have some old foodstuff that could be a potential toy consider giving it to your toddler for some screen-free fun.
I also have some dry oats that I'll bring outside when the weather gets warmer for him to toss around.
Has your little one played with food lately?
