Its funny to see how a blog evolves as one’s life changes and new responsibilities are added. As my little is becoming a very active toddler, I find myself looking at Pinterest for new ideas to keep her busy and learning new things at the same time. I’m going to be starting a series about our adventures trying out new ways to keep her busy.
She is almost 16 months old now and is such an adorable little person mashAllah. She loves her little room and reading her books there and is pretty good at playing on her own. But then there are times when she gets bored and I have to be creative to occupy her with something.
I saw this on pinterest this week and thought it would be a fun thing to try right before I had to vacuum since I knew this would be messy. I had a feeling Anya would enjoy this.
Just filled a Tupperware container with mixed lentils, gave her a couple of plastic spoons and let her have some fun. She loved it and was completely engrossed in feeling the textures, and scooping the grains.
I made sure I was right there all the time, since I knew she’d try to put them in her mouth. and yes she did, but because of their small size, I knew the choking hazard would be minimal. She did make a face every time she tasted them so hopefully she’ll learn the lesson. lol.
An activity that keeps a young toddler busy for half an hour straight, is definitely a ‘must-do again’ one. If you try this, make sure you do it on carpet, so its easier to vacuum as they wont bounce all over the place.
Thanks for stopping by!
