Banging them together made a satisfyingly loud noise. Lots of repetition was needed to enjoy it as much as possible because the noisier the better at the moment!
Turning them on their side to make a new way to play. This can fit in here and come out again.
Turning them over to add a different perspective. Lots of bashing the smaller bowls onto the upturned larger ones occurred as well as a long, careful time spent in trying to turn them back over again. Easier said than done for little hands!
And in the same vein as her big sister she had quite a bit of un experimenting with what else she could use the bowls for! Peepo!
Working hard to try and make them fit and eventually being rewarded for trying different combinations. Ooo look, these little ones fit inside each other nicely!
Absorbing, thought-provoking, simple fun.
