20+ items both common and unusual in a large wicker basket. Made from a wide variety of materials with a range of fastenings. Designed to hold many different things.
Encourage children to look closely at the containers and handle them, to ask questions about what they may be used for and what makes a good container for a specific job.
Sort the containers in different ways, practice taking lids on and off or opening and closing fastenings. Good for encouraging schema (children who love putting things in and out of pots and containers).
Use a range of 'fillers' (pasta, rice, beans, coins) to see which is best suited.
Includes Foxy Card with guidance and ideas.
