Day #37 What Happens If I Do This…?

by Sara le Roux,  Owner and Inspirer at sara le rouxThe Creation Station Penistone and District

Izzy has always loved toys that encourage her to explore and find out what they ‘do’ – jack in a box-style toys and puzzles especially.  When I came across ‘Tug Boxes’ I knew that she would be hooked.  There are many different versions of these boxes on Pinterest so it’s definitely worth browsing.

What You’ll Need

  • A small cardboard box
  • Something to decorate the box – I used some fantastic purple and blue leopard print ‘Duck Tape’ that I found a few months ago (and have been dying to use!).  Painting the box or using felt tip pens would also work just as well
  • Ribbon – half a dozen different colours, textures and widths (a variety is best)
  • Scissors

Paint or decorate your box and then poke holes in the sides.  Make sure the holes are spread out across the box.

Thread the lengths of ribbon through two different holes and tie a knot at each end of the ribbon – you need the ribbon to be long enough so that when your little one pulls on one end of the ribbon they see the other end shorten – cause and effect.

Izzy was keen to explore the box and spent time looking at the different ribbons and knots.  Once she’d figured out what the ribbons did she immediately began trying to also figure out what was happening inside the box too!
