Four Toddler Chores That Feel Like Play – Guest Post

at

I am learning how to keep a clean house as a stay-at-home mom. On the one hand, you think, I’m staying home, will have so much time to clean! But on the other hand, you also have tiny humans running around the house all day undoing everything you’ve done.In this guest post, Tammy Tilley from Parent Cabin is sharing some fun little tricks to make cleaning seem like play.We had just brought home baby number two when baby number one was three years old, a toddler. I distinctly remember worrying about how I could divide my time between the two. I certainly didn’t want the toddler to feel overlooked, as he had been “the baby” for three years. At the same time, I knew the newborn would need attention. For that matter, I realized I would need help with a variety of tasks. How could I get the toddler involved? Even more, what were appropriate tasks for him to help with? I was clueless. Turns out, the solution was simpler than I had initially realized. I just had to help the toddler think he wasn’t “working.” I had to make…

Best Toys for Traveling with Toddlers

at

Are you planning a family road trip this summer? Do you have little ones that need to be entertained?

I am planning to embark on a 10-hour road trip with my toddlers next week. In preparation, I have searched (and searched) for the best toys for car rides. You see, I have found that you can’t just bring any old toys on long car trips. Last week we took a 1 1/2 hour trip to visit family. My son cried most of the way, and was inconsolable. The only toy that made him happy was a ball, which he kept throwing overboard.

We do have a DVD player in the car, but I really don’t want my daughter watching it the whole time! My plan is to get some new DVDs at the library, watch one DVD and then listen to music while playing with a new toy. I notice that she learns a lot in the car when she is not watching the DVD player. So, I hope to keep the TV watching at a minimum.

So, in preparation for our big trip, I bought some toys that are made specifically for traveling. Here are some of the best ones I have found so far!
