What are the best totreasure basketsys for babies?  Do they need toys?  These are the questions that many parents ask themselves.

On August 25th from 6:30-8:00, Jo Ann Cook, from Child Connect will teach parents how to make a simple sensory basket that babies will enjoy playing with; a homemade toy.  At this program parents will learn how to change out their basket depending on the season, a theme or the child’s interest.  Parents will also learn what is safe to put in the basket and what is not.
