Creative Play

I’ve gotten bored of the same baby toys and games, day in and day out. Today I was on a mission to do something “new” with Micah. I pulled out a cookie sheet and filled it with just enough warm water to cover the bottom. Then I laid that on top of a beach towel on the kitchen floor. I put a handful of bath toys on the cookie sheet and let him loose! It was so funny to watch him spend the first ten minutes staring into the water. He would place his hands in the water for a few moments and then take them back out. Periodically he would lower his face to a few inches above the water and stare at the reflection of the kitchen lights. The ripples in the water caused by moving toys around really caught his attention. We played for quite a while! He didn’t even make that much of a mess, either!

What are some creative games you’ve played with your babies? I’m looking for more ideas!
