     Okay, who has babies/toddlers who do not like to pull tissues/wipes out of their containers? Have you ever turned your back for a few minutes only to realize you had left a box of tissues in the baby’s reach and now have a bunch of clean tissues all over the floor? 
     If this is you, your child would probably love this homemade toy for toddlers who like pulling tissues from boxes. It only requires a wet wipe container and a bunch of fabric scraps (you can use old rags or shirts). 
     First, cut out a bunch of rectangles about 12″x7″. 20 is a good number. Fold a third of the first piece of fabric under the rest of it. Then place the next rectangle on top of the first so that a third of the 2nd piece is on top of the folded part.

Then place a 3rd rectangle of fabric just like you placed the 2nd piece previously.

Then repeat the steps until you’ve done the whole stack.

     Place the completely folded stack in an empty wet wipe box, pulling the loose end of the top piece through the hole. Baby will have a blast pulling them out! If you have older kids, they can help fold the pieces.

  1. I am gonna have to try this! My 4 yr old’s favorite thing to do is pull all the tissues out and pretend to blow his nose on the whole box!!!

    1. Most of the time I use them for putting small toys, crayons or knick knacks in. They are good for school supplies too!
