One of the reasons I completely adore hanging out with kids is that they are constantly reminding me to appreciate the littlest joys in life. Like, shredded paper, for example.
I had originally bought few packs of crinkle-cut packaging paper for my Babyccino “postman” class. And the kids had a really great time messing around with it there – literally, it ended up in every corner of the room! I had stuffed some of it back into a ziploc bag and whipped it out yesterday to entertain Hudi for a bit on a whim…
I had no idea it would be this much fun! Watching her play with the stuff was totally the highlight of my day, maybe even my week! She was so involved and excited and stimulated! Plus, she didn’t even try to eat it!
Seriously, this smile is totally worth the few bucks it costs to buy some sensory stimulants! I’m definitely going to be looking into some more common-use materials for her to play with… But for now, here’s a link for crinkle cut paper!
