simple mom reminds us all that the newest, flashiest, and most expensive toys on the market are not necessarily the best. in a recent post, she offered 11 cheap (and free!) toys for young children. including:
- egg cartons
- empty food containers
- crayons and paper
i found this post significantly timely as i just put away some of my son’s birthday presents that he hasn’t opened yet. his birthday was in august. even though he received a number of flashy toys with colorful (and expensive) packaging, he seems to be most content with a baseball bat and ball. when will we parents ever learn?
