This has been one cold winter here in the Carolinas! And if it's not freezing out, it seems like it's raining (or snowing, like today and yesterday) and we still can't go out to play. My child has a million and one toys, but after a few days inside, she's bored with them all and the whining (ooooooh the whining) begins. This is when I become thankful for Pinterest and all the wonderful ideas to keep young toddlers busy at home!
She kept saying "HOT!" since I think she thinks that means any sort of extreme temperature. This kept her busy for a long time. My kitchen floor was pretty wet when she was done, but still easy clean up!
In addition to putting them in the tube, we also have sorted them into different bowls and muffin tins. These are fun, but only for a day at a time. I have to put them away and bring them out again after a few days for them to become exciting again.
Pipe Cleaners and Strainer!
This one frustrated her at first, but once she got the hang of pulling them out, she had a grand ol' time!
This one may not be entirely toddler appropriate, but she loves our collection of wine corks. She likes sorting them and carrying them from one container to another. I set up two tubs on different sides of the room and she'll transfer them back and forth. Also...they're a great deal of fun when you hide with them under the exersaucer!
So...tell me, what do you do at home to keep your toddler busy?
