If you're a parent, you know the joke about how you can spend a fortune on a kid's toys and they'll want to play with the box. It's true. And nothing to be discouraged of course. That's why this morning, while getting a pitcher of juice mixed up, I decided to keep the frozen juice container and make a little toy for Thing 2. Cheap? You betcha!...but she's been playing with it now for half and hour.
Here's all I did:
1.) clean out a plastic frozen juice container and dry it well.
2.) add some dried beans and/or rice to container
3.) seal the container shut with tape....yeah, if I had that colored duct tape this would actually be kinda cute but I didn't and Baby could care less.
