There are hidden treasures in your kitchen drawers — and I’m not talking about your emergency chocolate stash.
As I’ve learned from the wise and wisecracking Baby Sideburns blogger Karen Alpert, certain items commonly found in the kitchen can help entertain your baby while you go about doing important tasks like determining the source of that nasty smell in the fridge or fishing your wedding ring out of the garbage disposal. Or, you know, cooking — I think some people use kitchens for that.
Alpert gave me this advice months ago for a piece I was working on for BabyZone, and I’ve been applying it in my own life ever since. Here’s my list of go-to kitchen items that have entertained Scrunchy Face while giving mama precious time to microwave her frozen pizza. I hope they can do the same for you!
