The treasures basket is a game for babies quite used in Montessori environments. It's oriented to babies that already stay sat alone, more or less between 6 months and a year.
It's an exploration activity that allows the baby to explore daily objects. The idea is to offer the baby real objects that may be handled without danger.
We may prepare themed baskets:
- Nature objects (stones, leaves, fruits...)
- Objects on a same color
- Same objects with different textures, sizes...
- or a mix of different objects without any relation
These objects should be changed from time to time to avoid boredom and grow their curiosity.
Do you want to prepare one? You will just need a basket (most people use wicker baskets, but I'm quite calamitous and I just see the dangers of wood chips, so I bought an Ikea bamboo salad bowl) and daily use objects to put inside.
I also prepared one with different materials, textures and sizes of balls
However, his favourite treasures basket is... my bag XD
Please, try it, it's easy and they enjoy for a while :)
