Adam seems to love toilet rolls at the moment. He keeps running into the bathroom to retrieve one. Instead of trying to distract him I decided to make the toilet rolls into a game. As Halloween is fast approaching I turned the toilet rolls into ghosts and created the game Ghost Toilet Roll Towers.
To make the ghost toilet rolls I simply cut out the eyes and mouth from black card and stuck them on using double sided sellotape. I just had to show Adam the ghost toilet rolls and he immediately started to make ghost towers.
Adam made ghost tower after ghost tower. In true toddler style he enjoyed knocking over the ghost tower but couldn’t wait to build the tower up again.
After several minutes of play Adam realised he could roll the ghost toilet rolls. We rolled them backwards and forwards to each other. Adam even attempted to roll two ghosts at a time.
Adam then decided to take on mission impossible. He wanted to pick up every ghost toilet roll at the same time – all 8 of them. Needless to say he didn’t manage it – although that didn’t stop him persevering at the task for 10 minutes.
