What to do with a One-Year-Old? Here's where I actually revisited a pin on Pinterest that had activities for 1-2 Year Olds. I follow a lot of blogs, many of them parenting (with ideas for kids) but CJ is just too young for most of the activities. So, Pinterest it is. I also needed to find something that I had all of the materials for- so I decided on "Sensory Tub with Shredded Paper." Basically, you fill a bin with paper from the paper shredder and then add a few "surprises" (I put in some cars) and let the kid go to town. Just a week ago I witnessed CJ be able to entertain himself for at least an hour just playing in sand- same thing, right?
I set the tub in our living room, where there wouldn't be any distractions (he's not into ceramic bowls or expensive coffee table books quite yet) and thought he would dig right in. Nope. The stairs were just too close and he hardly ever gets the opportunity to climb them on his own accord!
Then the Little Man decided we were going to play a game where he walks (on his knees of course) around the house in circles while I chase him.
