Treasure Basket Update

It has been a while since I first wrote about our treasure basket.  In that time we have added quite a bit and Xander has played with it often.  It is amazing how long he will sit and go through all the items, although he definitely has his favorites.

I am still hoping to add more, but currently in the basket we have:

piece of red belt material (Hobby Lobby)
tassel (garage sale)
toilet paper tube
wooden spoon (play kitchen set)
wooden rod (play dough rolling pin)
piece of cardboard
jingle bell on a pipe cleaner
silver cup (gift from a friend)
piece of orange felt (Hobby Lobby)
rubbery key fob (from dealership)
Gerber's lid
pine cone
cork (provided by Grandpa)
wooden egg (Hobby Lobby)
velvety ring box
Altoids container
baby nipple

Since he is so fascinated I would like to keep adding.  Maybe a feather, a rock, or a sea shell?  I try to keep my eyes open at thrift stores and on walks.

What his room usually looks like when I get the treasure basket down.

Playing with his bell.

Back to the pine cone.

  1. I love the treasure basket. I'm starting a touch and feel basket for my DD2 she loves it like your little one does. Love the idea of the smelly bags think I will have to make some of my own for her.
