  • A Revision to Playing in the Rice Pan Recently in the Toddler Tip's ezine entitled "Outside Tips for Toddlers" I read the tip from Anna about the Rice Pan. *** quote *** Playing in the Rice Pan! Fill a dishpan with about 4 inches of dry rice. Put a few plastic cups, bowls, spoons, and small toys in the rice. Suggest your child bury the toys in the rice! This is a much cleaner alternative to sand. :) Submitted by: Anna **** end quote ***** What a great idea, but I'd like to make it even better! Birds eat dried rice when left on the ground outside, then it becomes a problem for their digestive systems - occasionally killing them. Instead of using rice why not just use bird seed. The seed has the added benefit of being different shapes, sizes, and textures so this adds to a more enjoyable tactile experience for your toddler. Environmentally you're also leaving the nutritional "mess" for the birds and then you can enjoy watching from inside the windows as the birds come to clean it up!

  • Baby/Toddler made CARD (all occassions) Have them draw with markers/crayons while you prepare card (folding, writing greeting etc.) Glue in their artwork. You can file away their art and use for on the spot greeting cards or thank you cards. For a extra special card use fine grade white contruction paper and puffy paint (fabric paint) smear some on hands/feet and stamp on paper. Leaves a beautiful imprint on paper and the paint washes off in water. NOTE~dont forget to date the print. Submitted By: Sarah(Added: 27-Apr-2001 Hits: 0 Rating: 3.00 Votes: 2) Rate It

  • Bath Fun Don't bother buying special bath crayons or paints. Good old sidewalk chalk works great in the tub for painting fun, plus it washes away easily. Submitted By: Stacey Leech(Added: 11-Jun-2001 Hits: 0 Rating: 5.40 Votes: 5) Rate It

  • Bath Treats Bath Treats ~ while taking their bath: give them Otter Pops or frozen Popsicles. This can really save time on dessert, and the mess and kids are cleaned up at the same time. Also jello in bathtub as a treat. It makes the water an exciting color as well) Submitted By: sarah(Added: 8-Apr-2001 Hits: 0 Rating: 7.50 Votes: 4) Rate It

 

  • Bathroom Vocabulary Our two year old daughter did not know how to say tissue(meaning bathroom tissue). Therefore, when the roll was empty and she couldn't leave, she would yell: "Would someone please bring me some tenny shoe?"

  • Be good for Mommy :) If you have one of those troublesome tots, this is a life saver! And works everytime, well with my friends anyway. Show your child her favorite sweet or chocolate. And say look at this, and then show her some stickers, say from now on if you are a good girl/boy for the whole day you'll get a sticker, if your good the next day you'll get another sticker, and the next and the next, and by Sunday evening, if you've got 5 or more stickers you'll get this (and show her the sweet again) Put a small table of the stickers he/she has or hasnt earned everyday and if she does get 5 or more give her lots of praise and the sweet, if this works use it from then on, but it's good to break the habit by the time they are 8 years old, because a sweet at the end of the week could turn in to a cell phone or leather jacket!! good luck.

  • Beat the whining! My 4 year old daughter had a real problem with whining, most of the time I dont even think she realized she was doing it. So everytime she would start I said "Cherra I dont understand that voice, if you want to talk to me you have to speak english." She would take a breath and then talk to me normal. After a few weeks of doing this she hasn't whined in a couple of weeks. Submitted By: Sarah(Added: 13-Jun-2005 Hits: 0 Rating: 0 Votes: 0) Rate It

 

  • Bedtime Stories No matter how tired you are, always take the time to read your child a bedtime story. When I was a child, we moved around alot. I often felt alienated. The one stable thing that I can remember my mother doing, is reading me a bedtime story no matter what. I would always have this joy to look forward to at the end of an awkward day. Today, I get to keep this joy going by reading to my toddler every night. I get to see the big smile on his face every night before he goes to sleep.

  • Bowl Gripper When your little ones decide it's time for self-feeding, try holding their bowl to the table with a rubber suction-type soap-gripper - the type that's about 3 inches round, with dozens of little suction cups on each side. The oval grips are washable and have surprising cling strength. When the bowl is empty (or sometimes before!) your little one will work at un-sticking it from the table or high-chair surface - a great hand-eye coordination exercise!

  • Break the pacifier!!!! If you want to break your little one of the pacifier habit...then, break the pacifier. Use siccors and clip the very tip of the pacifier. He/she can have the "paci", it will just be broken and won't work. He/she will not get the same satifaction from it as he/she did before and will give it up!

  • Brushy Brushy I had the hardest time trying to brush my 2 years old daughter's teeth. Her tiny mouth just refused to open wide enough. Now we play the nick jr. line up. As I am putting the paste on the brush, she decides who we should look for. "Blue & Steve, where are you? Dora, come out - come out where ever you are." When I need to get to the back, I tell her to open super wide so we can find 'Oswald'...the big blue octopus. It works great and no more arguing. She even asks to brush in the middle of the afternoon. Thanks Nick Jr.!!!! Submitted By: P&Pmom(Added: 23-Feb-2002 Hits: 0 Rating: 8.00 Votes: 2) Rate It
