It might seem simple, but we often underestimate the power of texture when we eat our food. Simple things like cooked spaghetti and rice can be easily transformed into beautiful rainbows with a little food colouring and strings of  carrot peel and banana to mush and squoosh can also be entertaining for little ones. You might even get them to eat some in the process – afternoon tea? Check!

10. Bubbles (Pretty sure you are doing this one)

Blowing bubbles near bub can encourage them to follow objects and older babies and toddler might be encouraged to get on the move to try and catch them.

There are heaps of great ideas of how you can safely use lights for bub to experience the thrill of their very own disco. Some people create light boxes, while others simply chuck the stored away Christmas fairy lights into a plastic jar so bub can safely explore and play.

12. Tearing paper

Trying to read newspaper in the mornings is a hard slog when you have to beat your toddler to it. If you fail, the newspaper becomes a shredded mess in no time at all.

Frustrating?

Absolutely, but have you ever noticed how satisfying it is to tear something up? Let bub go for it – once you’re done of course. You can also add water to this one, so they can experiment with the difference between shredding dry paper and wet paper, which also goes gluggy and squishy.
