One of my favorite ways to play with my toddler is with music and movement. He really seems to enjoy making noise, like most babies. While doing some recent Spring cleaning, I realized we had quite a few empty prescription bottles laying around. They could be recycled, but instead I decided to upcycle them into toddler toys!
Note: You can definitely skip the decorating part. I choose to decorate them so my kindergartner could also play with the maracas in a different way and also work on word and number recognition skills.
