Due to my stepdd throwing up this morning then I've had to postpone my plans to go to the farm today. I had about 4 hours sleep last night and can hardly think straight. mindees Mum said that if it was infectiou her little one would catch it anyway as she was here yesterday so I'm still working but I onlyhave one today, who's nearly three and has the most incredibly short attention span. So far this morning we've done playdough, played outside, played with toy babies and done some drawing on the LMax. All in one hour!

What keeps your toddlers occupied for more than ten minutes at a time?

painting with water outside keeps mine busy for ages, or washing up all the outdoor toys with sponges & soapy water.

My 2 year old mindee is the same doesnt matter what I plan she will play for 10 mins tops but my dd is the same age and will play for ages, its very frustrating they are both asleep at the mo so a wee 5 mins for me :laughing:
