what random objects did or do your kids play with that arent toys?

My 6 month old was scooching around on the floor and found an empty baby cereal box that fell out of his diaper bag and he pushed it and chased it all over our living room for at least an hour. So that got me to wondering what other random objects other kids are getting amusement from.

  • DD loves to play with empty soda bottles. 2-liters, 20 oz bottles, whatever she can get ahold of. She goes nuts waiting for me to get done drinking the soda so she can play with the bottle. She also has to play with empty juice boxes when my SO is finished with them!

  • My toddler grandson's favorite things to play with are two flat bamboo salad forks that are about 12 inches long that I got at clearance at Walgreens for a quarter. He walks around with them, pounds on stuff, makes music, & hands one to someone else to sword fight with him. The dogs don't like them much because sometimes they get pounded.

  • My kids loved playing with my pots and utensils, empty boxes, and the TV remote. I was lucky enough to fake them out with an old calculator to replace the remote. lol Thanks for giving me a short walk down memory lane.

  • He loves the remote & cell phone, although he KNOWS he isn't supposed to play with them.
    Next fav... a HUGE box he can get into! I got a shipment from JCP that a couple of Christmas gifts came in, the box is about 2x3x2, so he can easily get into it. He loves it and it has been his fav toy for the last week!
