When putting up the Christmas decorations Adam took an instant liking to the Christmas baubles. Instead of attempting to keep him away from them I decided to give him free rein of them. Our special Christmas decorations are towards the top of our 8ft Christmas tree so are definitely out of reach. We have collected a big box of extra baubles over the years so there were plenty to go around.
Using our Ikea plastic bag dispenser I demonstrated to Adam how he could throw the baubles into it. He soon got the hang of it – although he was dunking the baubles into the dispenser more than throwing them in.
* Christmas baubles – ensure they are plastic or will not break
* A large box
* Ikea plastic bag dispenser – or anything similar
Adam was 19 months old.
