Toddlers are trouble!
They can get in to every thing and anything, often in the blink of an eye. Last week I found my one year old putting her hand in the toilet after the baby gate got left open. In order to get anything done you need to have something that will keep their attention. Here are three ideas to help keep your toddler busy:
1. Playdoh- Seriously the best thing for toddlers. I like to make a batch of the cooked kind, it lasts forever and is safe to eat, cause you know they will eat it. Get out some cookie cutters, little bowls, spoons, and let them have at it.
2. Rocks in a yogurt cup- I know, its a weird suggestion. But there was a time when all of our kids would play with rocks and a yogurt cup for hours. Find some good size rocks outside, wash them off and put in a few plastic containers. They can stack them, move them from one container to another, and make noise by shaking them in the cups.
3. Water- I love this in the summer. Bring them outside with a few bowls of water, some wooden spoons, measuring cups and spoons and let them get wet. (Be sure to stay with them, water in containers is always a drowning hazard.)
