keeping my toddler busy

It’s easy to keep toddlers entertained without the fancy toys, or tv.  You just have to use your imagination and use some of the things you have lying around your home.

I made this play tub for my 2 year old son River the other night and it kept him busy for at least an hour, and he wanted it again the next day!

It’s nothing more than a deep baking dish, some colored plastic cups, a few spoons and kitchen tools and whole flax seeds.  Just being able to pour, scoop, fill, dump, etc…. is never ending fun for little ones, and great sensory play.  I had the flax seeds on hand but almost anything will work; uncooked pasta, rice, beans, etc…

It’s always so fun to see and experience things through their eyes and appreciate all the small things in life 🙂
