invitation to play with disney characters!

as much as i despise these figurines they are bowie's favorite!  she has played with them every single day for the last 6 months!  so i thought i would try an activity bin with them.  i used a chip and dip tray with beans and threw in some craft sticks and lids.  anything that keeps her happy and entertained is a win in my book!

i don't know why it always surprises me, but sometimes simple is best.  as much as she loves her disney characters, she took them all out and asked for a spoon and her stacking cups.  she had a blast transferring the beans into the cups and then between the cups.  this activity held her attention much longer than the disney characters.  which makes this mama happy because this provides some good lessons in fine motor skills, sorting, counting and size and volume.


  1. She knows her Disney characters do not belong with her beans and cups. Good try EB.

  2. Is your dust buster strong enough to suck up the beans!??!?

  3. oh yah! this is when i love my dust buster the most! a mommy must have! and great for removing spiders too!
