Our 11 month old kid loves to be helpful and tries to copy whatever we do. Unfortunately, he's about a year or two or three away from having the physical ability to do so. So what simple things can we teach him that would be sort of helpful in doing everyday things, or at least wouldn't break stuff or actively hinder us? [more inside]

My infant daughter has cloth toys that make a "crinkle" sound and I want to know what the material is inside it that causes the crinkle..does anyone know what it's called? Where can I find it? Is it separate (two different pieces of material-one inside the other) from the outside material (which is soft cotton) or all one piece? I want to make her some toys that crinkle...
