It honestly isn’t easy for toddlers to stay occupied while you are homeschooling the other kids. It could drive any regular, good, awesome mom – quite frankly, mad. If you could use some help keeping your young ones occupied while you homeschool, clean, or just take a break, then these DIY toddler busy board ideas will be great for you.
It isn’t that we are failures or that we can’t handle it. It is just that you are human and could use some help at times. Even the best, put-together mom can’t stand a chance against a bad day and a cranky-full-of-energy toddler while trying to homeschool other kids.
Busy boards are awesome tools to keep your precious toddlers busy while you get to do the things you need to do or just the things you want to do for a short time. When it comes to homeschool-mom-life, that is golden.
What is awesome is that you can make these all on your own. These boards make great toddler activities that can be made from things you already have in your home. You can get items that lock and unlock, push and pull, open and close and that make lots of noise or that have different textures your kids will be intrigued by.
Don’t let your toddler feel like they aren’t “doing school” like their older siblings. Help them learn their shapes!
