Treasure Bin: Yellow Wooden Objects

What is a Treasure Bin?

A small amount (5 to 10) of similar items to put in front of your growing baby and let him/her explore!

Ensure that the items are safe to babies (no choking hazards or sharp edges) and that your baby is supervised at all times!

May loved her all wooden Blue Treasure Bin, so I included all wooden yellow objects thhis week too.  She especially loved the yellow wooden pegs from this Melissa & Doug toy.   I kept her Treasure Bin upstairs and every time I brought her up she got ot play with it.We keep her bin under the couch and I take it out a couple of times a day.  Most of the items included in her bin are from Melissa & Doug wooden toys.

This week, I wanted to include only wooden objects.  May loved all of her blue wooden objects and also loved playing with the bin.  We keep her bin under the couch and I take it out a couple of times a day.  Most of the items included in her bin are from Melissa & Doug wooden toys.

Treasure Bin: Red Objects

What is a Treasure Bin?

A small amount (5 to 10) of similar items to put in front of your growing baby and let him/her explore!

Of course, ensure that the items are safe to babies (no choking hazards or sharp edges) and that your baby is supervised at all times!

This week, we worked on the color red!  May loved her Treasure Bin this week, just as much as last week.  She especially loved having a little car.  I could tell she felt like a big girl with her car because she sees her brother with cars and trucks all day, every day!

My first post about Treasure Bins is here.

Treasure Bin: White & Black Animals

I saw the idea for “Treasure Baskets” from Mari-Ann at Counting Coconuts.  The idea is that you put a small amount (5 to 10) of similar items in front of your growing baby and let him/her explore!  (Of course, ensure that the items are safe for babies and your child is supervised at all times!)

Here is Mari-Ann’s first post with details on how she began treasure baskets.  And here is a slideshow on Facebook of all her baskets.  

I started this with my daughter this week and she absolutely loves it!  She is now six and a half months old.  I waited until she became old enough to confidently sit up, so that she could reach at the items with less frustration.

At first, I wanted to have a sweet basket like Mari-Ann’s, but I decided to use what I already have and went with our beloved Ikea Trofast bins.  This has been nice for storage — they go right back on her shelf — as well as making the items more accessible to May — using a lid makes them easier for her to reach.

Her first-ever Treasure Bin consists of items that we already owned.  I will try to make one for her about once a week.  I started out wanting to do black & white, but as I was collecting items I discovered that they were all animals, so it became a White & Black Animal Treasure Bin!

I included in her bin:

  • soft white teddy bear
  • soft Snoopy
  • Schleich animals: panda & white tiger
  • Little People black puppy
  • Fisher Price cow & sheep
  • Melissa & Doug wooden zebra puzzle piece
  • twisty polar bear

And here is sweet May enjoying her Treasure Bin.  Isn’t she adorable?!  I love to watch her exploring the different textures!
