Great idea!! >> Here's a really cute idea. Frame quote bubbles, use a dry erase marker to write funny things your kids say. When you are ready to switch the quotes, have the child take a picture with their quote and make a photo book of quotes. My mom says you think you'll remember all the funny stuff they say, but you don't.

Paint in ziplock bags, taped to table. Great distraction, no mess! (to add to this: I think, so long as the paper is under the baggie, you could write words, put stickers or little drawings, and then spread out the paint throughout the bag. They could then use their fingers to move the paint around and uncover little surprises, just like one of those Fisher Price Mess Free Finger Paints sets)
