25 Things to do with a Wiggly Toddler - Love the water colors in an empty bath tub idea! I'll have the kids do it tonight before bath!!
25 Things to do with a Wiggly Toddler Boy (other than get frustrated) 1. Put him in an empty bath tub, give him water colors and let him go. 2. Put rice in a cake pan and let him pour from cup to cup. 3. Put him outside everyday regardless of weather. 4. Give him a small spray bottle of water and a rag. Set him loose on the fridge front, bathroom tile, linoleum, etc. 5. Make homemade play dough; give him a rolling pin. 6. When reading aloud, ask him many questions. Get him pointing, naming, giggling over each picture. 7. Have him run and tag the front door, run back and give you a high five, and repeat. And repeat. And repeat. 8. Find an empty box we can fit in; stay in the room with him to ensure safety- but get that book you’ve wanted to read for a while, because he’ll be busy for a while. 9. Teach him how to build a fort with the cushions. 10. Let him spread the PB and J. 11. Play with him for at least 10 minutes at a game he loves. This will satisfy much of the need for attention that leads to naughtiness. 12. Bubbles! 13. Boys tend to be tactile learners; stacking cups and plastic containers in an accessible cabinet can be fun. 14. Fill the kitchen sink with soapy foam; get out a big ladle and some cups and let him go at it. Let him “do dishes.” 15. If you have a play house, let him throw a safe ball out of it. 16. Find an old spoon and let him dig in dirt. 17. Music facilitates learning like no other activity. Make up silly songs to everything- be silly and tease your children with music. 18. When he is feeling mean and you are feeling mean, tickle him. 19. Don’t be afraid to repeat activities often; if he is getting restless, immediately choose a “go-to.” 20. Let the little guy “help” you in all of your tasks until he discovers his blocks or trains again. You’ll be teaching him valuable skills. This one can be hard because we want to get things done, but the boy will be grown soon and might now want to help anymore. This may be one of the most special times of your lives. 21. Play a favorite dance song of yours; let loose and dance around. Your boy will either laugh or join in; both are fun. 22. Use your pull up bar low on the door frame- and let him swing. 23. Find markers and a notebook; let him go to. 24. Assess his needs- is he hungry, tired, wet, overstimulated, bored, or lonely? Help him fulfill that need. 25. Replace every negative thought immediately with a positive one. Instead of, “My kids drive me crazy” think on purpose “This is a phase; Jonny really is a good kid” or “My kids must be bored. What can I do to help them?” See an article on this here.

mommy mittens! such a great idea, in fact you could "retro fit" these to gloves or mittens you already have.
Not for me, but this would be a cute idea to sell at craft shows. mommy mittens! So cute
mommy mittens! Oh, these are so cute. I love holding hands and wish my kids still did so!
Mommy mittens! Winter handholding can be difficult; two sets of bulky gloves can mean that little hands slip out of reach. With this clever design, an adult and child can hold hands in comfort in one warm glove. So cute <3
