AJ recently started raiding the nappy bag at every opportunity in search of my purse. Once found she would proceed to pull each and every thing out of it. It was fun…the first, second and third times but by the tenth time I finally got my act together and organised her a purse all of her own.
I found one of my old purses, choosing one with lots of pockets and credit card slots. I added a collection of cards for her to explore – old plastic store cards and business cards that I covered with clear, self adhesive book covering.
I also printed out some family photos at credit card size and covered them also with the book covering. You could also laminate the cards, just be sure to round off any sharp corners.
She loves pulling them out, looking at the pictures, pointing to each family member. Then she asks for them to be put back into the slots in her purse so that she can start all over again.
