1. Fabric scraps in wipes case
2. Masking tape on cupboards
My new favorite activity for Henry. I stick pieces of tape all around the kitchen at his height. He walks around to pick each piece of. This is the best while I'm trying to make food because it takes awhile for him to get them all off. Then he'll play with the sticky pieces. If he gets bored, I stick some more up and he's happy again. He learns some good motor skills too.
3. Frozen food colored ice cubes (sorry, no link)
I read this in an article somewhere and tried it for Henry. He really liked this the first time I tried it. He chased the ice cubes all around the tub, and I didn't worry about him holding onto something frozen because of the warm tub water. A lot of the color goes out into the tub, so I had to drain it and refill it again to wash him clean. The second day I tried it, he was mildly interested. The third day, he was done. I think if I only do it once or twice a week, he'll like it.
4. Edible baby paint
I thought it would be so much fun to let Henry paint. I whipped up the paint: flour, water, and food coloring, and went outside to show Henry.
I would recommend this for babies who don't like to move. I also found that it needed more flour or less water.
