Ribbon Pull {Playing With Baby, Day 20}

I did a little brainstorming session to come up with a list of fun new activities for my ten month old and decided to share them with you over the next month in a series called 20 Days of Playing With Baby.  None of these ideas are Earth shattering, supper cool, never been done before activities but maybe you haven’t tried them before or maybe they will help spark a fun new activity of your own.

For this activity I used:

  • Empty oatmeal tub (small cardboard box would also work well)
  • Variety of ribbons
  • Knife
  • Large needle

I found this variety pack of ribbons in the scrap booking section at Hobby Lobby.  It included 12 ribbons of different colors and textures and was perfect for this project.Ribbon Pull {Playing With Baby, Day 20} - finddailyjoy.com

Using a sharp knife, I poked small holes into the empty oatmeal tub.  I tried to line up the holes so they would be the same height and opposite each other.  I then used a large needle to thread the ribbons through the holes, left a few inches of ribbon on each side and tied knots in the ends.  Now Henry has an endless supply of fun, colorful ribbons to pull and tug!Ribbon Pull {Playing With Baby, Day 20} - finddailyjoy.com

At first we held the tub for him to help provide some resistance when he pulled the ribbons.Ribbon Pull {Playing With Baby, Day 20} - finddailyjoy.com

But he did eventually hold the tub himself.Ribbon Pull {Playing With Baby, Day 20} - finddailyjoy.com

Of course he had to bang on the tub like a drum.Ribbon Pull {Playing With Baby, Day 20} - finddailyjoy.com

He also thought it was great fun to watch the tub roll and then chase after it.
