Counting On fans know that Joy-Anna Forsyth enjoys parenting. Gideon’s a cute little boy, and in fact, she’s expecting her next child in November. The couple, Joy-Anna Duggar and Austin Forsyth married at the Cross Church in Rogers, Arkansas in May 2017. Baby Gideon arrived in February 2018, and his charming smile captivated the hearts of fans. Now, mom Joy-Anna shared a cute vid showing Gideon and his box toy.

Counting On baby Gideon’s easily amused with his box toy

On Friday night, Joy-Anna took to her Instagram to share a simple toy she made for Gideon. Literally, it’s a box with the lid on and two slots. Using old business cards, Gideon can ‘post’ his cards into the box toy. Well, most parents know that kids and cats seem endlessly amused by boxes. So, it’s a really neat idea to keep a toddler happy for hours. In fact, Joy-Anna notes Gideon’s been amused for days since she made it.

The adorable tiny tot seems totally engrossed in it, so that’s a win for Joy-Anna. Perhaps she learned it from her mom, Michelle Duggar. Michelle raised 19 kids – no mean feat- so finding ways to keep them amused must be excellent knowledge. Counting On fans like it when the Duggar family share their ideas on amusing the kids because the family experience on the subject is vast.
