What's Inside?

E loves to play What's Inside?!!

To do this activity, I put a toy (block, rattle, lamb, etc) in a tin and shake it up and ask "What's inside?" E gets SO excited...she grins, waves her arms, and kicks her legs. I then help her open the tin to see what is inside. We talk about the concepts of in/out and open/closed. O joins in on this activity and guesses what is in the tin. This is a fun, simple, and quick activity for babies and toddlers!


  1. I have similar activity (for older children, E is too little) on my blog. You can check it out here, if you want:

  2. Thanks for this tip - we've been playing it (and loving it!) ever since I read your post. You can read about it here if you'd like:

    Thanks again! ;)
