Playing with nuts

nuts-smMy little one is a very curious toddler. She likes finding interesting things in the house, and she also likes shapes and colors.
Yesterday she found a very interesting thing: a basket of nuts!
Immediately she asked me to give her the basket, she looked at it for a while and then she started to study better any nut she found inside.

Nuts are very intersesting: they have different colors and shapes. And best of all a little toddler cannot break a nut and a busy mom, at least, has to take some nuts from the floor and not a milion of little pieces of it. Nuts are also big enough to not being swallowed!
Anyway, she started sorting nuts by color, then by shapes, and finally she made pictures.

Sure, you should have a very good immagination to see the same picture in it! But the most important thing was keeping her busy, safe and focused on something creative.

This creative game took her about an hour and gave me the time to tidy up the kitchen and the time to cook a good lunch for us and her sister who was coming home from school.

In my opinion, creative games aren't always easy to find, they have to be interesting for the child and often, something, an adult find interesting, is not for a toddler, but once a good creative idea works for a child is good to keep it in mind, it's always a better option than TV or other games that need an adult to supervise the child.
