Toddler Activities

Can anyone help me with ideas for keeping a toddler busy? I have a very active 21mo daughter who needs to be busy doing something almost constantly. I spend most of my days pulling her out of the bathroom sink, kitchen sink, off the counters and kitchen table. It's quite dangerous for her to be

    Default Toddler Activities

    Can anyone help me with ideas for keeping a toddler busy? I have a very
    active 21mo daughter who needs to be busy doing something almost
    constantly. I spend most of my days pulling her out of the bathroom
    sink, kitchen sink, off the counters and kitchen table. It's quite
    dangerous for her to be in all these places as we have tile floors
    throughout the house and one fall could be devastating. I need some
    ideas that will keep her "grounded".

    Thanks,

    Carol

    My daughter is about the same age and we have the same issues. For Christmas we
    bought a minitrampoline with the safety handle bar. She loves it and it uses up
    a lot of that extra energy. Consider activity buckets to keep her out of the
    sink. Lay a shower curtain on the floor fill a dish pan with an inch of water
    (or dried beans) give her lots of little cups etc. A few suds in the pan are
    fun too. You can also do this as a wash station. A few small rags and a few
    waterproof toys or baby dolls are a lot of fun. Have a few towels ready! Good
    luck!

    What kind of sling do you have? I've made a Mai Tai but she wasn't too
    crazy about it. Maybe I need to make a bigger one for her since the one
    I made was for my newborn.

    I have an Over the Shoulder Baby Holder, but if I had it to do over
    again I'd get a maya wrap or babymoon (babymoonslings.com) in the same
    style with but no padding.

    I have never heard of Elizabeth Lee Designs. Where are they? How can I get in
    touch with them or purchase the sling pattern? Are they on the internet? Thank
    you so much. Emmy in Iowa

    Hi Emeline. Here's the link for Elizabeth Lee Designs.

    http://www.elizabethlee.com/patterns/mompats.htm

    Like I said before. I have made many of the slings from this pattern.
    They are fairly easy to make and so far the most comfortable sling I
    have found. It comes with very clear sewing instructions and great
    instructions on how to wear it and examples different positions for
    baby. I used this with my 2nd daughter from the time she was a newborn
    (practically, I used it in the hospital) and she's a 21 month old and I
    still use it sometimes when I'm in a pinch.

    I hope this helps.
