Noisy containers

The twins are really into collecting objects in pots at the moment and love transporting objects from one place to another. We have a rockery in the garden and they've been driving me mad, moving the stones around the garden and onto the grass. 

I decided to give them some metal containers and showed them how to collect the stones. They've really enjoyed hearing the satisfying clink as the stones go in and I think this is the main motivation! This activity is great for developing fine motor skills and for developing early maths skills. The placing of the stones one by one is a skill needed for counting when they grow older.
