Quiet Time Baskets: Nature and Halloween

It's been a while since I posted any quiet time baskets, and that's because I haven't changed them out in a while. But I got some fun stuff for a Thanksgiving basket and a snow basket, so I had to make room.

Nature basket

  • I painted the cupholders of a fast food drink caddy red, orange, yellow, green, and brown and the girls were supposed to take it outside and fill each container with things of that color.

  • Assorted pinecones and rocks

  • A magnifying glass, a small flashlight, and a makeup brush for examining rocks

  • A birdhouse

  • Four flipbooks of insect, bug, and bird trivia with magnifying glasses to look at the slides

Halloween basket

  • Halloween playdough (lime green, purple

  • Rolling pin and cookie cutters

  • Glow in the dark skeleton (it's the same size as Helena)

  • A test tube of glop from the dollar section at Target and a Halloween segmented plate to play with it on (ONLY ON THE PLATE!!!!)

  • A science experiment workbook

  • A picture book about pumpkins

  • A picture book about a haunted house

  • Geeky glasses to go with the mad scientist stuff
