Who knew posting lids (which I have been saving for a while now – I knew they would come in useful sooner or later) into a shoebox would keep two children entertained for so long?! So simple to setup, I just cut some rectangle holes into the bottom of a shoe box, and that was it. The two girls (aged 18 months and 3 years) were happy for ages posting the lids, then emptying the box and starting again. They would’ve been happy posting anything, so you could cut different shapes for different objects such as duplo blocks, pom poms, crayons etc. I did stick number labels (with the corresponding number of dots) on to the lids, and we did post the lids in number order a couple of times but really that was too slow for the girls, and also picking off the labels was apparently just too tempting :o)
