I am constantly trying to keep my toddler occupied and I need some new ideas. I've done paper bag puppets, paper bag hats. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanx!

Try papier mache. It's a fun project and can be broken down to last over a couple of days. Then have a play with the masks if that is what you've made. Make brownies or muffins together. My son LOVES cooking together. We've done it since he was 1yr or so.

I enjoyed reading all of the ideas as my little 2.5 yr old son is wanting and needing new things/ activities to do too.

Thanks for all of the ideas! Harper really enjoys finger paints and drawing so she will definitely like painting anything! She also LOVES to cook and helps me with all of the meals during the day. She is especially up for baking!..the treasure box idea sounds like a lot of fun and I am off to look up paper mache right now!

You can make treasure box out of old shoe boxes. Put silly things in there, hide it and draw a map to find it. My daughter loves this. Until she draws the map and I can't read it!!! LOL

THere are tons of things that can be done. Soup, coffee, veg and fruit cans can be cleaned then painted. Make them into pencil holders. Also, 20 oz pop bottles can be turned into bird feeders. YOu can find how to do that online.
