With a baby in the house we go through a ton of baby food. This means lots of those little containers that are awesome for re-purposing for crafts, on the go snack containers, or even into educational toys. Gerber’s new Lil’ Bits convenient plastic tubs are perfect for your crawler and for crafting. We have had a blast playing with these counting boxes made from our Gerber Lil’ Bits containers.
Items Needed for Counting Boxes

- Small (larger than a half-dollar) Items to Count
- X-Acto Knife
Why Gerber Lil’ Bits?
Mashing and chewing is an essential developmental skill for your little Crawler and Gerber’s Lil’ Bit recipes are made with your growing child in mind. Their perfectly sized soft bit of fruits or veggies offer a gradual texture progression which helps babies learn the skills they need to transition to table food. Introducing pureed foods with advanced textures at the Crawler milestone is highly recommended for children to explore and feel multiple textures within the mouth without having to manage numerous separate food components. With their Lil’ Bits recipe Gerber is filling a gap in early childhood nutrition which is pretty exciting!
What better product to make an educational toy with than one that helps your child’s development? Plus their product packaging super cool 😉
How to Make Counting Boxes
Using a permanent marker, write numbers on the sides of your clean containers. One the lids draw a small rectangle. Using your X-Acto Knife cut out your rectangles and then secure your lids to their containers. Once your tubs are ready it is time to play!
Help your tot use small items to count and place them in the container. This is a super fun quiet time activity!
