The tug box was fairly easy to make. I got a recycled cardboard box and made small holes around the outside with scissors.
I threaded recycled ribbon and string through the holes and tied several knots in each end.
I used Duck Tape to secure the bottom of the box and pulled all of the ribbon/string so that it was all inside the box.
Adam looked extremely puzzled as to why I was giving him a box to play with in his highchair.
He started to pull one of the ribbons and was surprised when it kept coming out.
There was no stopping him then. He pulled all of the ribbons within a few seconds using both hands.
He even discovered he could pull them back from the middle of the box.
Inspired by Precious Play.
I have left the DIY Tug Box near his Busy Boxes – although I don’t think it will occupy him for long!
