Baby Play: Treasure Baskets

Treasure baskets are a great way for babies who can’t yet crawl to discover textures, sounds, shapes, smells and colours.  They can reach into the basket and pull out anything that strikes their fancy, exploring everyday items with wonder!

The only rules about creating treasure baskets are that they should not contain plastic and should not contain anything the child might choke on. Use fruit, vegetables, metal, leather, stone, ribbon, fabric, brushes, felt: the possibilities are endless.  Here are some examples used in a church creche and toddler group:
