Mixing Bowl Madness

This fun activity is so simple, but so fun. It's a great way to work on a few vocabulary words and several other skills (see link for examples) and to fill up a few minutes of the day with fun. 
 All you need are a few mixing bowls (preferable in a variety of sizes to stack and nest), maybe a few small toys, and a baby to play with. Turn them loose and see what happens.
Spatial Relationships: Will this bowl fit into the other one?
Paisley had a great time exploring the materials and finding out how to manipulate them. She especially loved dropping toys into a bowl and listening to the sounds they made and watching them swirl around in the bottom if she shook it.
Hand-Eye Coordination and Gross Motor: Look, I made a tower!
