My granddaughter is now 8 months old, and we’re still having a great time with Montessori treasure baskets. Today, I want to share one of my granddaughter’s all-time favorite “toys” … her Montessori-inspired ball treasure basket.

Treasure Baskets for Parents, Grandparents, and Caregivers of Babies
Treasure baskets are extremely versatile. They’re amazingly easy to prepare and adapt for a baby’s needs and interests.
Here are my previous posts about treasure baskets for babies:
Ball Treasure Basket for Babies
Zoey loves her Montessori-inspired toys and materials, but her ball treasure basket is the first thing she crawls to when she arrives at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. She is especially in love with the Spielgaben yarn balls.
Items in Zoey’s ball treasure basket:
Zoey loves to take her yarn balls with her when she crawls around our house. Our main floor is babyproofed so that Zoey can crawl anywhere except the bathroom.
Ball Treasure Baskets for Playtime with Others
The ball treasure basket is a great source of lots of playtime fun with others. In the photo, Zoey and her Aunt Chrissy are having fun with the yarn balls, including putting them on noses. Yarn balls are a natural way to talk about colors, too.
Taggies Colours Toss for ages 0-2
At her own home, Zoey has the Taggies Colours Toss from For Small Hands. She loves it! She likes watching her mom toss it in the air and catch it. When it’s rolled to her, she likes to pick it up and bang it on the floor. She’ll chase after it, too.
Because of Zoey’s need for movement at her age, a ball treasure basket is perfect for her. Almost every baby would enjoy one at some point. 🙂
