Sponge Shapes

Who says toys for toddlers have to be expensive? Who say learning toys for toddlers have to be expensive? Here is a super cheap, easy and fun idea to try at home.

Buy some colorful sponges at walmart or the dollar store. Cut them into different shapes. I used circle, square, heart, star, and triangle. And let your little ones play! You can talk about the different shapes as you play, or group them by color for a different learning activity. My girls love to toss them and see how the shapes bounce and roll differently. They will also enjoy watching what happens when water is added to a dry sponge.
