Magic Scarf Box
This is an entertaining activity that is sure to stimulate your baby's curiousity. You will need an empty tissue box and some lightweight, colorful scarves (cloth squares may also work).
Tie all the scarves together (end to end) then place them in the empty tissue box. Leave one small end of a scarf out, enough to pique your baby's interest. Now get your baby's attention and start to pull out the scarf line saying, "Look at what papa found, you try now!" Offer her the scarf and watch the fun begin! As she gets older, you can also teach her how to put the scarves back in the tissue box to start over.
You can also try using an empty paper towel tube instead of the tissue box. Be sure to never leave your baby alone with the line of tied scarves so she cannot get tangled!
