Hi, I'm a first time mom of a very hyper 20 month old boy! I'm used to having lots of friends but I don't know anyone in my area. I'd like help with activities him and I can do together to keep his attention. Any suggestions? We go to the park sometimes but I can tell he gets bored.
Thank you

i have cloud dough. its 8 cups of clour one cup veggie oil mixed together. i put it in a big plactic bin and give them dump trucks and other toys .... it last for almost 2 hours. i made edible paint and bought a big roll of paper and rolled it on to the floor and gave them the paint. they had a blast with that. i have also made pudding or jello and put it in the bath tub(easier to clean up) and got them naked and let them make a mess lol that lasted along time. colored rice instead of sand in a sand table for inside and gave them scoops and other sand toys. put rice in a ziploc baggie add a few drops of desired color and a tablespoon of rubbing alcohol....shake the bag till coated then spread on a baking sheet and let dry. i hope theses help :) i know that all of these activities usualy last an hour or more
