I have a 20 month old and a 3month old daughters and my oldest is very busy, does anyone have some simple craft/busy activities that I could get her started and give more attention to my baby?

Hi Sarah. We make clay dough together and I keep a huge tote full of cookie cutters and mine love that. I often will fill a little box with small things from Walmart in there .88 cent isle and that is a fun activity. I have a book that is called eco crafts for kids and here are a few age appropriate things from there:

There is making rock pets....picking a rock can take a good amount of time and encourage a trip to the park.....Making bird feeders with pinecones and peanut butter is good this time of year for those poor birds out there and you get more from them sitting at the window watching the birds eat....having a supply of different sizes of boxes for them to make castles or doll houses out of is fun too...I have a whole book of stuff I will check back if you would like some more or if you would like specific ideas say for marbles or whatever

My son loves play dough. It'll keep him busy for a while. You can also try finger painting with chocolate, strawberry, or blueberry syrup. Just put her in the highchair with paper and a small amount of syrup on a plate or bowl. It'll keep her busy, she'll have lots of fun and you don't have to worry about her eating the "paint!" You will have a mess to clean up depending on how crazy she gets with the syrup. Mine were pretty good about keeping it on the paper or in thier mouths!!

I would buy kids paint, small paintbrushes, and paper. Maing sure that the floor was covered, I placed her on the chair while handing her a paintbrush. She looked up at me and I said paint me a picture: which she proceeded to do. The only problem is that she wanted to paint all the time so introduced washable markers, crayons and coloring books. It kept her happy, busy, and proud to make something to give to Mommy for the wall of fame. But it also make me proud watching her.
