What surprising things entertain your kids?

My 18 month old has been playing with a bag of basket filler paper that he dumped out for the last hour. He put some in basket, then a truck, then his basketball goal. Then he ripped some up and now he is stacking it in a pile on my bed. Very messy but he is so entertained.

  • When my son was around that age, he would play with the same bowl and spoon everyday. First he would put the bowl on his head. Then he would pretend to mix stuff up in the bowl with the spoon. Then he would use them as a drum. I would just watch him play with this bowl and spoon all day!
