Keeping Busy With A Toddler: Part II
Hope you enjoyed some of the boredom busters from my last post. Here are a few more to keep you busy. Most of this stuff I had lying around the house but you can adapt almost anything with what you have on hand.
I don’t know if it is the age or what, but my toddler loves to wash the dishes. We set her up at the sink with a clean sponge, have the water on low and put all her kitchen toys in the basin. She will get wet and so will your counter but easy clean up and passes the time and instills some good habits 🙂
Rainy Day Stickies:
Broke out the saran wrap again for some rainy day fun. I cut out different color blue raindrops and a cloud and we sang rain, rain go away while we stuck the stickies on. Make sure to use press and seal, sticky side out.
Play-dough Cutting & Fossils:
We have a fake pair of doctor scissors, so I let my little one test out her cutting skills (which are non-existent by the way). She broke up the play-dough into tiny pieces and then sorted them back into the containers. We also got out our “friends,” plastic characters, and pressed all their feet into the dough to look like little fossils.
DIY Tissue Paper Rainbow:
Daycare told us it was national rainbow day the other day, so I drew a rainbow on a piece of white construction paper and cut tissue paper into different shapes. I spread some glue and let my little one stick on the colors. We also used cut up cotton balls for the clouds. There was some frustration with this one when she tried to stick paper where there was no glue. Prep time, maybe five minutes.
Stay safe and enjoy!
That’s all for now!
