Easy-on-the-Budget Boredom Busters :)



Pampers Pegboard?



Yesterday I caught Little Biscuit pounding on a diaper box with one of his toys. So I cut a hole in the box and cut a paper towel tube into several short "pegs." I showed him how he could "hammer" the peg into the hole. He spent a long time working at it! And he already started playing with it again today. Sheesh, I really do think the cheapest and simplest toys are his favorite!

We also used the same diaper box to make an indoor wagon...the only other prop I needed was my red, long-sleeved shirt (tied the sleeves together to make the handle, and Biscuit's weight was enough to hold the shirt on the box without clips or tape).

That's an awesome idea!! Your blog looks great and your Biscuit is a cutie. I'm also a magazine editor turned stay-at-home mom, though I freelance still at 1 a.m. It's nuts. Were you at Meredith? I was in New York.
