Thank you for the great ideas! Curiosity blocks sound perfect for church!
Friday 4th of November 2011
I've used mine to make rattles and curiosity blocks for my daughter. She loves the rattle one which is just filled with some defective beads. You could also fill them with dyed rice, lentils, pasta, etc... Just hot glue or super glue the top shut and done.
Curiosity blocks: I have filled them with other things that don't make sounds but that are interesting to look at. I have one filled with colored pompoms, ones with bits of scrap felt in different colors, and one with shiny confetti and sequins. Once again, glue the top shut and you're good to go. I also put small toys that are not safe for her to currently handle into them and glued the top down on them. She likes matchbox cars, but the edges are too sharp for her. With it safely in the tub, she can look at it all she wants and even put the block in her mouth without injury. She also can use them as blocks and stack them.
