Interesting Thing Box

I am putting together a travel box for my Big M. He will be 11 months when we move, and he is very curious. He loves to check out all sorts of new things. New textures are especially stimulating, as well as bright colors, and things that make neat sounds when banged together.

I want to make an "interesting things" box, so that I can just pull out one item, let him check it out and then trade him out when he gets bored and rotate through. However, I need lots of ideas of easy, relatively clean, and cheap things to put in the box.

So far I have the following

empty soup cans
beaded necklaces
box of Kleenex
pipe cleaners
something with velcro (dont know what yet)

What else would you put in?

  1. Maybe a shaker/maraca? Container/old medicine bottle/plastic easter egg filled with rice or beans
