Often when it comes to entertaining Quackaboy, we’re out of ideas to keep him busy. I stumbled upon a Facebook article on toddler play ideas and thought to give it a try!
One of it was easy as we had the items in our house already.
A huge one. We gave him markers and colored pencils to draw on it while sitting inside. And Daddy added to make it look like a mini spaceship too.
Well, it was very successful and he was playing in it for over an hour. And the next day, and the next day too…
From a spaceship, he made it into a car, and then into a house.
Happy toddler = Happy parents!

After the Christmas season, and playing with his Xmas toys, he has forgotten about the box. But we’re okay with that because any toy, over time, will become boring or too common for him. We have been saving an even bigger box for him to play one day when he gets really bored or when he just needs new stimulation.
Maybe by then time QB2 comes, the bigger box will be useful to keep him occupied a few hours! 😀
If you haven’t tried this with your toddler, GIVE IT A GO!
Let me know how it turned out!
