Q Tip Cup Filling Game for Toddlers

As you know I'm a big fan of recycling day-to-day items and turning them into stimulating toys for my little toddler.

Here's a great one that requires very few, and easily accessible, household items. What's more, it's a quiet (and relatively safe) activity for your toddler if you need a couple of uninterrupted moments to answer a phone call, make a grocery list etc.

Clean and dry the cups before use. To get rid of any sticker label on the cups, try applying peanut butter on the adhesive residue before washing (the oils will facilitate a clean wash.)
