Pringles and Pencils

This is an activity made from a Pringles can with holes in the lid and a bunch of unsharpened pencils. The basic idea is to take them out and put them back in again. Easy, right? It actually takes a a lot of coordination and concentration. The little guy loves to work on it.
An addition to the activity is using pencils of various designs. We can talk about the colors or pictures as he plays. He also uses the sign for "open" and "more" often as he needs help getting the lid on and off.
Making toys has really changed the way I look at food containers!
