My mom had a bunch of corks when we were at her house this weekend, and she asked me what she could do with them. I told her we should find a container with an opening that was the same size as the corks. She disappeared soon after that (I thought she was washing clothes, but she was really searching for the perfect container), and found the perfect container. E was SO excited! I wish I'd videotaped her because her excitement over this activity is not adequately shown by the pictures (especially since I'm trying to crop them to show less of her face!)
After she put the corks in the container, she enjoyed closing the top.
She opened it and tried to shake the corks out.
I eventually showed her how to take the whole top off to shake the corks out of the container.
E was supervised very closely during this activity since corks are a choking hazard. I was very glad that she was so into putting them into the container that she spent very little time putting them into her mouth!
