KEEPING THE TODDLERS BUSY

Hello everyone! This blog is for my mommy followers, or pretty much anyone with toddlers in their lives. Keeping a toddler occupied is hard. I'm sure it's even harder when you throw in the fact we're quarantined and you can't use your normal outlets to keep your child engaged or entertained. I wanted to share a few kid-friendly activities you might want to try with your toddler at home that will be fun for the both of you, as well as quick to tidy up, because we all know, no mom wants added mess! Check them out below! 


DIY Stamps

What you’ll need:

Glue Gun

Blank Paper

Foam Shapes

Paint, ink, or markers

Bottle caps, wine corks, anything with a small flat surface

For this craft, all you have to do is glue foam shapes onto bottle caps! Have your toddler dip them in paint or color them with marker and have them create their masterpiece on a piece of paper (and hopefully not on your walls!) If you don’t have foam shapes, you can cut some potatoes in fun shapes and use them instead.

DIY Necklace

What you’ll need:

Pasta (preferably penne)

Acrylic Paint

String

This one is fairly easy, paint the pasta as you please, let it dry and then insert your string. Voila! Not only do you have a new fashionable necklace, but your child is able to explore their fashion sense. Add some glitter for pizazz !

DIY Sand

What you’ll need:

8 Cups of All Purpose Flour

1 Cup of Oil [Could be Baby Oil or your oil of choice]

Simply add your flour and oil, if its too oily add some flour, if its too dry add more oil. Put it in a little container and have your little one sculpt their own city! Add some food coloring if you’d prefer color.

DIY Binoculars

What you’ll need:

Two empty toilet paper rolls

String

Glue

Decorations of your choice

With all the extra toilet paper you probably have at home due to quarantine, this should keep your toddler active for some time. Simply glue two empty toilet rolls together, decorate them as you wish. Add a hole on the outer left side and outer right side, tie string through those holes, and send your toddler off to be a secret spy or bird watcher. Make a game out of it by playing eye spy!

Paper Bag Monster

What you’ll need:

Paper Bag

Construction paper [ if you don’t have, simple copy paper can do)

Markers, acrylic paint, crayons

Decorations of your choice

This one is super simple, decorate your paper bag as you please, add “teeth” and a “tongue” under the flap. Have a puppet show with your little one, or have them put on their own show for you!


If you choose to do any of these crafts be sure to tag me so I can see!! Hope you all have a great day!


With Love,

From Bindi
