My son is obsessed with construction sites. When we drive by an active construction zone, you’d think I took the kid to Disney World. He gets just a little excited. I wanted to do some baking today, so I had to come up with something to keep him occupied while I was in the kitchen. The first thing that came to mind, was of course something construction related. Although I could’ve taken the easy way out and plopped him in front of the TV, I decided to not play the role of lazy mama today. I quickly threw together this little activity box. You can make one too, here’s what you’ll need:
Get creative with what you add to your box, no need to run out to the store to buy anything new. I used what we had in our playroom. I found the little CAT trucks at Dollar Tree awhile ago. We had the trees and hay bales from a set of plastic toy animals.
This activity kept Jackson busy for about an hour. The best part of using a food container is I can put a lid on it and bring it out later (maybe I’ll get dinner made in peace!).
