Here is an easy way to entertain a toddler. Let them sort 🙂 . All you need is paper, crayons and scissors . I cut my little triangles and squares from foam sheets , they are resistant and easily reusable. But if you don’t have any than paper will do as well.
My little one was sorting yellow and red triangles and squares, although you can make them sort any other shapes that you fancy cutting and drowning. I also tried cutting circles but after two that looked like eggs I gave up 🙂 . She was very glad sorting her shapes anyway . 🙂
