Playing in a box

playing in a box, literally

It is very convenient to allow your child to experience and play with all kinds of materials when you put him in a box or crate. You fill up the box with some kind of material, so that your child is sitting in the middle of it. 

Many children enjoy this game immensely. Suitable materials are: chestnuts, tennis balls, cuddly toys, and everything you come up with yourself. When using small materials it is useful to put a sheet underneath the box or crate. This makes it easier to clean up when something falls out.
