Easy Busy Toddler Activities – Egg/Spoon Races, Moving Marbles and Sifting Flour

4 Comments

Grab a spoon and go!  I love our new game of racing plastic eggs on large kitchen spoons.  B yells, “RACE!”  And B can’t get enough of transferring marbles with the wooden, toaster tongs.  I keep watching him to see why he likes it so much.  Maybe it’s the shape and color of the marbles.  We have also been working on cracking eggs this week.  B LOVED cracking the eggs into a bowl and wanted to practice on all the eggs.  I had to explain why we needed to save some – it’s always for Daddy or Papa.  He’s okay with saving some for them.  Earlier in the week we sifted flour.  This activity keeps him busy for a very long time and he becomes completely engrossed (also covered with flour).  Also, B enjoys pictures of himself that I post on the refrigerator.  He likes to take them down and talk about them (himself).  These were the top hits for this week and they were super easy!  What are your kids playing with this week?
