Inexpensive Entertainment

A while back, my friend Jen told me about a homemade toy that provided hours of entertainment for her daughter Sophie.  I decided to make one this past week, and it's been a hugh hit with Emmy.  She literally sits forever playing with it.  Wanna know the secret to toddler happiness?  Hair curlers and an old oatmeal container.  I cut a circular hole in the plastic top, covered the container with pink patterned scrapbook paper, and bought several packages of small fuzzy hair curlers at the dollar store.  Em loves to dump out the curlers, put the top back on, and then push the curlers into the container one-by-one.  In-out-in-out...toddler heaven.  She even discovered that they stick to her shirt and to hair!
