I am not a full time homeschooler, but I do homeschool my boys for preschool. I am having some difficulties though. My 13 month old will maybe last 5-10 minutes tops while I am doing stuff with Ty at the table. What do I do??? How can I involve a 13 month old but still do 4 year old activities?

Oh edible playdough is a great idea, I hadn't thought of that, thanks for the other ideas too!

Wow, now I have a funny craving for edible Play Doh....now where did that come from? :lol:
I think that Krista had some great ideas, especially the PlayDoh one (tee hee)!

I'de be carefull with the beans could be a choking hazard. No way I could use colourbooks, markers, chalk, crayons with my ds eaither, he would have eaten them, still does eat chalk.

Edible finger paint on the highchair tray

Oh that's right, I forgot; normal kids (not mine) eat things, lol

LOL, yes, Gavin is very much into putting things in his mouth so I couldn't do some of those things. I'm going to try to make an activity board for him to. Edible finger paint sounds fun. I'll have to have these things on hand and only let him do them while Ty is doing something with me.
Thanks!

Too bad they don't make edible crayons! That would save parents a lot of headache!!

I used to get yogurt and color it. Remy loved it when he was an itty bitty! :)
