Tub of Aluminum Foil

Holiday cooking greatly increases the amount of time we spend in the kitchen during November and December so we are often looking for activities that toddler can do in the kitchen as we are cooking.  This activity not only works well in the kitchen, but it also uses kitchen supplies!

The tin foil for this activity can start as a sheet but in our house it quickly become multiple pieces thus the tub part of the title.  Toddlers love tearing and balling up the aluminum foil as it creates different noises and textures to explore.  They also often love to try to un-crinkle  what they have previously crinkled which greatly increases the fine motor practice of this activity.
