This is quick, easy, & entertaining for the littler ones. Leviah gets 2 uses: 1. rolling to a new destination & 2. opening the top, dumping, and refilling the can. (if the second use isn’t one you approve of, just tape or adhere the lid on so it’s not an option for your child).
What you need:
Tube container (oatmeal, yogurt, a can with a cardboard end)
about 5 feet of yarn
Using a hammer and a phillip’s head screw driver punch holds in either end of your tube. String yarn through both holes & tie knots to keep it from pulling through (a small stick to tie the yarn around would be great, too)
Fill the can with beans & put the lid on.
