Simple Play: Soda Bottle

The simplest tasks like blow drying my hair or fixing dinner have increasingly become difficult since Porter is a walking machine.  If he's not tearing something apart, he's falling on his head or playing in the toilet water.  My solution: place him in his highchair and find something that will keep his attention for a 5-10 minutes.

This simple soda bottle filled with warm soap water did the trick yesterday.  He loved flipping the pop bottle over and over to look at the bubbles.  Then he would put the bottle to his cheek and notice how warm it was.  I wonder what will keep his attention today.  If you have any ideas, please let me know!

We have used the soda bottle to put a variety of things in it. Little rocks, marbles, shiny ribbon, rice, :-) Have fun! I love the warm, soapy water. What kiddo doesn't love bubbles? :-)

Thanks, Kristin. The simple things are so amazing at 13 months. :)
