Last month, I ordered some seamless paper with the intention of using it as a nice background for taking the boys' pictures. Right. They were far more interested in rubbing their head on the paper and crawling all over it while squealing! I have now realized that if the boys are growing cranky or bored, all I need to do is whip out the seamless paper and they become very happy. Luke especially loves the paper!
Nolan absolutely loves to wear things on his head. Whether it be a hat, lovie blanket or napkin. He doesn't care! He also knows that if I begin to tap my fingers against his mouth, he can say "aaaaahhh" and it sounds funny!! We do this quite often during the day!
Playing with paper shopping bags - they love them!
Kitchen spoons & Tupperware bowls. I can get loads of dinner prep work finished if I give them some wooden spoons!
Playing under the kitchen table - just don't try to stand or you'll bump your head. I've ended up sitting under the table with them while we clap our hands and sing. Apparently, this is quite fun for them!
Boxes. Sitting in them; sitting under them; banging their hands on them; it makes no difference. They enjoy this too!
Please enlighten me with ways you keep your kids entertained! I'm always looking for ideas!
