I need some fresh ideas for keeping my 3 year old busy while I do school with my 5 year old. Typically my 3 year old does school with me for about 45 minutes to an hour a day, and my 5 year old does school for about 2 and 1/2 hours a day. We take little breaks of course, and while I am focused on my 5 yo I try to give my 3 yo some fun tasks like stringing beads, coloring, sorting coins, stuff like that. But I'm running out of ideas and my 3 yo is getting bored lol. My 5 yo is very easily distracted, and then hard to get back on track, so, coupled with a bored 3 yo our school week has not been very productive so far lol. I could really use some ideas to keep my little one occupied.
