Since LP has been dropping from one nap to two, the afternoons seem to have grown a little bit longer. It’s tricky to find ways to keep him entertained in the house and mama doesn’t always have the energy for running around the children’s play area in the park. Even though he’s still really little I prefer to try and do something a bit more creative with him. But when it feels like I’m constantly on my feet, the last thing I want to do is something that involves making edible fingerpaints on the cooker or going out to buy tricky project ingredients (hello, Pinterest!)
This ridiculously easy sensory activity is great for toddlers and older babies and uses up ingredients that you have in the cupboard. It kept LP interested for 30-40 minutes. Moreover, it kept him in one place for 30-40 minutes, meaning I had time to drink a cup of tea. Win, win, win, win,win.
