Keeping toddler occupied while putting bub to sleep.

Do any of you mummies with toddlers as well as new bubs have suggestions on how to keep your toddler occupied while trying to put your baby to sleep?
I try and put my daughter in her bassinet while she's drowsy and then hang around to pat her if she needs help settling, but whenever I do this my son runs in and yells and screams and wakes her up so I either have to start the whole process again or I end up cuddling her to sleep (which doesn't leave me any time to do any housework/study/have playtime with my son).
I've tried to put a movie on for him, make him a snack, get his drawing materials or playdoh but no luck!! We're all getting a but frustrated so any suggestions would beich appreciated:)
