Toddler Activity #1*

Eric discovered an awesome activity for our child - putting coins in the Belle bank. It occupies his attention for long periods of time and helps him improve his dexterity. Look how focused he is! He's great with the bigger coins and has to work a lot harder with the smaller coins. You can see in the top picture that the coin is turned perpendicular to the coin slot. Seriously, it's not a super easy task for him, but it is one he loves to do.

Also, yes, this is my beloved Belle bank. She's been looted a lot more than usual lately since Eric has been going to yard sales again. Plus Ike has this new fascination with her.

*The fact that I've numbered this post as if it is the first in a series in no way obligates me to have a series of posts about toddler activities.

That's a great idea! There's a Children's Miracle Network coin bank thing at the grocery store that Libby loves putting coins in, so I'm sure she'd love something like this. I'll be on the lookout for a bank at the thrift store.
