How to entertain a toddler on a 13 hour road trip? Variety. Lots and lots of variety. And more entertainment means less tantrums. So here’s the first post in a series because the iPad excitement has finally worn off, and we have six hours to go. Cue in a mini-project from @themastinproject – big enough pieces to not get lost in the car, small enough to hide in a bag and whip out at mile 625 for something new and exciting. Plus y’all know I love sensory boxes. Bug is in the back working on her fine and gross motor skills, problem solving, and integrating four of her five senses (hopefully not taste, but with large pieces I’m not even worried about her choking if she does decide she needs to see what the cookie cutter tastes like). Bee is snoozing, and here I am, able to get some content cranked out for y’all! Thank you @themastinproject -these are a new road trip essential for sure.
