Let's face it ... keeping kids occupied is hard. My almost 2 year old is into everything and anything - and on top of that, has figured out how to move things around to climb up on to get into even more. Toys and PBS Kids can only go so far with keeping him entertained and a lot of times he likes to be near where I am. Recently I came across this neat article on The Measured Mom - 5 ways to keep a 1-year old busy. Just wanted to share - hope it helps some other moms out as well.
