A Wipes Bin For Play!

All my kids have at one point during their baby/toddler years, pulled all of the wipes out of the wipe bin. There's something just wonderfully fun about pulling them out one after the next and they are so thrilled with themselves as they do it but it doesn't make Mama very happy when it happens. :) So why didn't I think of making something like this long before the 4th child? I have been keeping my scraps as I sew in an empty wipes container and Samuel got ahold of it one day and I realized that it was great entertainment for him! So I made some more 'scrap' size pieces, some long ones, some of them I sewed multiple little ones together so there would be different patterns all strung together as he pulled them out...and he LOVED it! :)

He did this over and over again many times and even kept putting them back in all by himself!

It was so simple and quick to make and was such a hit...I'm definitely going to pull this one out during school time with the big kids when Samuel needs something to do without Mommy's help. :)


  1. What a terrific idea! Oma

  2. Breanna -

    This is TOTALLY genius!!! I wish I had thought of it when my babies were babies!! They're now 7 and 5.5 but I imagine I could do this for my daughter to use with her's just BRILLIANT! So glad I happened upon your blog. You have wonderful ideas!!

  3. This is such a great idea! Your (absolutely adorable!) little one looks to be around the same age as my little one (19 months), and I think he would love this! Your blog is fantastic, I can't wait to read some of your other posts!

  4. Oh my gosh, I totally want to do this! My son is obsessed with taking ziplock bags out of a box, so I bet this would be even better!

  5. Just visiting your blog for the first time - you have such awesome ideas! thanks for sharing them :)
