It’s hard coming up with activities that suit the needs of both my toddlers. The other day we took out markers and were having a fine old time until Tzviya (1+), post bath-let me add- began coloring on herself. It was an experiment- I understand. Self expression. I got it. But the more I begged her not to draw on herself, the more she wanted to. She also tasted the markers and graffitied all over her door before I pryed it away from her.

At least she's having a good time. At least the markers aren't toxic.

Any ideas out there that would occupy a 1 and 3 year old??

I tried crayons but she ate those too. I know people are going to suggest the magna-doodle and that actually occupies her for a couple minutes, although not as long as real markers, but the problem here is with my son. All he wants me to do is draw trains for him. It drives me NUTS! I actually took out the markers for him- to encourage him to draw himself and this is what happened.

So I’m putting it out there. Please please HELP!

Admiration. This occupied us for a really long time.
