Treasure Basket Ideas - an all wooden object treasure box. Notice the basket itself is also made of natural materials.

Treasure Baskets. The idea for this is called Heuristic Play, coined by child psychologist Elinor Goldschmeid, and it simply means the discovery of the properties of objects. In Heuristic play sessions, you present your baby with a selection of natural or found objects, from around the house and garden and allow them the time and space to explore them using all of their senses. LOVE THIS!

Baskets/ containers of similar shaped objects are a great way for babies to explore the properties of items - can they go on me? can they go in each other? can I build them ... the opportunities are endless!
