  • It sounds really simple, but my kids love post-it notes. I will give them the pack and let them draw little pictures and then go to town sticking them all over the place. They come off easy and it keeps them entertained. I tripped over this discovery by accident when I didnt have anything to entertain them and now I always have some. They are cheap, easy to clean up.

    The other Mommy tool I rely on is my I-phone. I have a couple apps that will keep them occupied.
