Hi, I ended up with 2 of these and have one outside for water play but the other is in the house on legs with a diagonal division and looks ever so empty. has anyone got any suggestions what I can use it for / fill it with?

cheers jac

We just randomly put toys in it, mostly construction ones we find our littlies love to play this way.

Dried rice/pasta/lentils/oats/gloop/jelly/hay and animals/different material scraps and hide things in it. Also put smaller objects in the rice and give the children tweezers to pick out and sort if age appropriate, otherwise ask the children what they would like to put in it if they are old enough.

we use one of ours for cars, or have sand or rice in it on wet days. x

I always find they like shredded paper I sometimes hide objects in for them or other times just let them playh usually ends up as hair :)

We use ours when the children play with shaving foam, or cornstarch as it contains their messy play quite well when the weather isn't nice enough to be outside.
