|This spells F-U-N|
While I was cooking dinner, Stella kept wanting to help. I was letting her play with measuring cups and bowls when I thought I would try putting her in her highchair and letting it rip!
What you’ll need:
- rice or small pasta
- measuring cups, different sizes- I even used some of those little cups that come with over-the-counter medicine
- a spoon
- a couple of different sized bowls
- a broom for the aftermath
- a bib
- a cover to go on the floor under their chair to catch the overspill!
|Flour does feel cool in your hands, don’t ya think?|
I know these ingredients sound pretty boring, but your kiddo will absolutely have a ball. There is something about pouring things into other things that is exciting to a toddler! And it kept her busy for an hour or more. The set-up worked great while I finished cooking because she was busy doing her own thing close by!
So yeah, it wasn’t a pretty outcome in terms of the mess factor, but she loved it! Perfect if you’re trying to get dinner ready or for any rainy day.
Stella: one, Tropical Storm: zero! (Mama’s sanity: score!)
|“Did you want some?”
(My hair beret magically appeared because Mama realized she should blog about me doing this)
