These homemade rattle toys are a fun way to teach your baby about different sounds. You can make them with things you have at home.
Find bottles, boxes and containers from around your home. Make sure they all have lids. Next, fill them with small objects. You can use toys, water, food, craft supplies – anything you can find. Avoid using anything that breaks easily. You may want to secure the lids with some tape.
See if your little one will help you make the toys. Once they’re finished, have fun shaking them and listening to the different sounds. Which is their favourite? What’s inside each container?
