  1. I loved this post. Would it be okay if I shared it on my site?

      Yes, you can share the idea with a link back to my post. Thanks!

  2. I have been on the search for different sensory activities to do with my daughter now that she is getting bigger. I will definitely be adding this to my list! This will be a great supervised activity to do with her. Can’t wait to try it out!

  3. This looks good , I’m curious to know how the tire stayed in place , my Daughter is grabbing now ,wondering if this can topple over

      Our tote was pretty heavy duty, so I didn’t feel like it would topple over. I also stayed right next to my baby while he played with it. Please use caution when doing this activity though!

  4. This is the most creative sensory object I’ve ever seen. I’m glad that I came across this blog because I’ve been looking for a new activity to help my baby with her grasping techniques. I made this ribbon box and she just loved it. I’m looking forward to making more sensory objects.

  5. I know how babies love to grab at cords and things and I can see where you’re coming from but, I’m sorry, this is potentially really dangerously. I’m not saying you would want to cause any danger or bringing your parenting into question but I feel like I should point out how young children can become easily tangled in long strings and that there is a risk of strangulation that comes with this. There was a campaign not too long ago where children were getting injured from cords used to open and close blinds. The ribbons you used are shorter but they stil look long enough to carry that risk, especially if one came loose. I’m sorry again to be the one putting a dampener on your project and I’m not doubting your parenting or intentions but I couldn’t bear it if something went wrong. At the very least, please put a supervision warning on this page.

      Thanks for your insight! I will add a disclaimer to use supervision to this post. Of course, I would NEVER want to put anyone in danger. 🙂

    2. Omg, thank you for your comments.Don’t want to take a chance either.
