My toddler found a new fascination with wallets and cards of all types while we were discovering ways for her to play while traveling. She already had an old wallet of mine in her toy box, but I decided to spice it up a bit for her by adding cards and play money, since taking things out and putting them back in is one of her favorite ways to play.
I started with a couple “souvenirs” from our Disney trip – Wreck-It Ralph’s autograph card (one of her favorites) and our used park tickets. Then I added one of Daddy’s business cards and an old rewards card from our pharmacy.
I also printed and laminated some play money and added some wooden “coins” in the coin purse.
Other things you could add: any empty gift cards, fake credit cards/airline cards sent in the mail, wallet size photos (or pictures from magazines).
Now we have a simple, inexpensive toddler toy that is easy to throw in my purse or diaper bag to entertain my little one on the go!
