Thank you Pinterest for your amazing ideas on how to better serve my family! My rambunctious 10 month old is rarely satisfied for long, growing weary of this I turned to Pinterest for some suggestions. The two that were the fastest and easiest were the ones I chose. Here we have the easy peasy remove straws from bottle and put back in the bottle. Originally I just shoved the straws in and called it good but baby girl had way to easy of a time pulling them out by the handful. Simple fix, cut straws to height of bottle place back inside and quickly give back to the screaming child!
Your child may figure it out on their own, but I needed to show her how to put the straws back in the bottle so i didn't have to... After all what good is a "keep little hands busy project" if mom has to continually run over to fill the bottle back up with straws. She figured it out very quickly with just a little instruction from mom.
The second idea was just a simple but a little bit more rewarding visually. Take a Ziploc bag squeeze a couple different paints inside(I did this in thirds and was careful not to let the paints mix too much in this stage),tape the ends of the bag closed then tape the whole thing to a window a child can reach. Ember was actually more impressed with the bottle and straw game then the window painting. Her four year old sister stayed entertained by it more the she has and has requested her own. The girls entertained and happy at the same time, that's considered a win-win in my book any day!
Looking pretty excited about mamas little window creation!
I hope this post finds you well and in good spirits. Hope you have just as good of luck entertaining the little hands in your life with these simple go-to ideas!
Peace and Love,

You can also check out my Pinterest board Kidscorner which is where most of my kid craft ideas are stored. More likely than not both of these are there...
