Creating a Bored Toddler Kit

What is in your handy kit?

Keeping toddlers occupied for long periods of time seems like mission: impossible right? Believe me, I know!

I am often there while waiting in the car with the kids somewhere along the line or even if we are out to dinner. Toddlers are just restless little creatures.

Last week I actually found myself in serious need of my handy dandy tote bag full of treats, tricks and crap to occupy a 2 year old.

I had gone to pick up the kids from school and there were tons of signs about a Red Cross blood donation drive starting in a half hour. My husband is always looking for a time and place to donate blood when he is off from work. Well that ended up making my quick 10-minute trip to pick the kids up from school a 90-minute session of occupying kids who really weren’t in the best of moods and of course really needed a good nap!

Thank God my mini van also doubles as a damn fun house or I have no idea what I would have done!
