This morning I draped a blanket between the corners of the couch and found an empty box for my girls to play with. The box became the car, the bed, and then the dinner table. They had snacks and lunch inside their "girl's only" fort and giggled an entertained themselves all morning.
Toddlers are more interested in the empty box than the toy that came in it, are just as entertained by random household items as they are expensive gifts and are enthralled by the simplest of things. It's just one of the many things that make toddlers so much fun. So, enjoy this phase with your toddler and try one of these simple activities today.
1. Build a Blanket Fort
5. Let Her Be a Kitchen Helper - Anniston loved to "cook" beside me, and especially loves pretending to use measuring cups and spoons, bowls and big wooden spoons.
6. Recite Nursery Rhymes
7. Fill The Sink Full of Bubbles
Have Some Marker Fun
10. "Sort" The Laundry - This is definitely Anniston's favorite chore. I obviously have to do it again when she's finished, but she's cute so I don't mind. :)
