Digging for Treasure

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Toddler's Busy Book

Challenge your toddler to find the treasure you've buried in his sandbox.


  • Small objects to hide
  • Shovels
  • Colander
  • Sandbox


  1. Hide small objects in the sandbox for your toddler to find as he digs about.
  2. Try using an old kitchen colander to sift through the sand.
  3. If you like, spray-paint rocks in shiny silver and gold, and show your toddler how to search for hidden treasure.
