Making Music

When Audrey gets bored with her toys or is particularly clingy or fussy, I like to pull out the music makers. In our house, that means Josh's guitar, two pots of different weight, and two wooden spoons. This entertains her for quite a while, and the "instruments" can be used in so many different ways. She figured out that she can tip the pots, and ended up stacking them upside down on top of one another. Smart, except that she couldn't figure out how to get the little one out of the big one. So cute. I love this activity because she controls it - unlike the plastic electronic toys that entertain her, here she is entertaining herself.

How versatile are wooden spoons?! Teethers, noise makers, pushers, scoopers - you name it and a wooden spoon can do it.
