This is one of T’s favourite toys. It took about 5 minutes to make using a bag of pompoms from Hobbycraft and an empty squash bottle. It is a brilliant sensory toy for babies from about 6 months plus who would enjoy looking at all the different colours and watching how the pompoms move as they shake the bottle.
After reading this brilliant post by Carly aka Mummy, we are trying to use more figures and interaction when playing with T to encourage his speech development. We make up little stories with his construction workers and diggers to move the pompoms around.
So simple yet so much fun!
