Spoons in the Box!


Toddlers Activities & Games: Cereal Box Spoons

You can have some fun with this easy activity to do with your toddlers. Take an empty cereal box and take a utility knife to cut a small cross(X) in the middle of the front or back. Make the cross just big enough for your toddler to push a small plastic toddler/infant spoon through it. Close the top flap of the box, and take about 10 plastic spoons and then let your toddler push them in the box through the opening you just made. Then let your toddler pick up the box and shake it around to hear all of the spoons make noise inside. Sit on the rug and slide it back and forth to each other. Open it up and let your toddler dump all the spoons out.  Then do it all over again!

– empty cereal box
– utility knife or scissors
– a bunch of small plastic toddler/infant spoons

Talk about the colors and the number of spoons there are.

  1. Sorry for such a flip comment. Having been in leesardhip positions my whole adult life and with just one car i can relate to so many of these stories. I think there are some great pointers here. One Sunday my wife and I were having a small spat in the car after a stressful morning on the way to church. We were running late. The kids were just being kids. We were both flustered and after driving for twenty minutes to get to the chapel something just snapped in my brain and we (I) just kept driving past the church.The car was totally silent for about twenty minutes and I drove out into the desert where there is a lone Dairy Queen ice cream place and some big rock nearby. i made a phone call back to let certain people know we wouldn’t be there and We all loaded up on ice cream.(Yes, Daddy had snapped) and crawled on the rocks in the desert and chased lizards. Best Sunday ever. Most spiritual Sunday ever. We had a small lesson on the Golden rule and being like Jesus. Since then I’ve had many Sundays where i opt out of the madness. What is that scripture Sabbath was made for the man and not man for the Sabbath? Yeah. I feel I understand that better now.
