Treasure baskets are one of my favourite activities for babies but actually in my experience of working with young children, you can create treasure baskets for children of all ages!
A treasure basket is a collection of items that sparks interest and curiosity in children, so yep that could be children from babies to big kids!
Treasure baskets hold a special place in my heart. It was the catalyst that made me reignite my love for play and a huge part in me starting playHOORAY! I was an exhausted first time mum and looking for something for my just beginning to sit independently six month old baby. Recalling my days of working with young children I decided to set up a treasure basket. Grabbing a few (safe!) items from around the kitchen, I popped them in a shallow basket and sat back as my baby touched, tasted and explored the basket independently.
