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 🙂
