i thought of it second.: 3 toddler activities.
Car Ride Activities Set 1...good for quiet time, too.

Must make: tablecloth playhouse or fort. Store in a drawer when you're not using it. I think that's pretty cool!
Sweet... Early Graduation Gift For Baby ~ Do it at the end of each school year starting with kindergarten.
Backyard chalkboard--less mess and the rain washes it away--such a good idea! use birch plywood. First we painted the front and back with primer to seal it, and then we just painted the front with a quart of chalkboard paint. He attached it to the fence with galvanized wood screws. So far so good, it's been 9 months and it looks brand new.
Put their first pair of shoes in a shadowbox and hang in their room. Use velcro on the backs to make them easy to take off if needed. Note to self: Shadowboxes can be found at Michaels.
Baby laundry bath! This is one of the best ideas I've ever seen. The baby has something to lean up against, the toys can't get away and it could save countless children from drowning because they have something, besides the slick tub walls, to pull themselves up on in case the fall under the water. Put a towel in the bottom to sit on for anti-skid.
Fort made from hula-hoop and shower curtain, just hook the rings on the hoop! Great indoors and outdoors.
