  5. broken leg - how do I keep her occupied

broken leg - how do I keep her occupied Rss

My 21 month old, very active daughter has just broken her leg. She is in a full leg plaster and is not allowed to walk for 4-6 weeks. Any suggestions on how to keep her occupied would be greatly appreciated - as she has had the plaster on for less than 24 hours and is already getting very bored and frustrated. I also have a 3.5 year old to look after.

Thanks

I don't have many suggestions- just some sympathy for you. It must be daunting thinking of the next 6 weeks with a bored toddler to amuse!!
Here's my suggestions:
-puzzles
-bubbles (maybe big sister can blow them for her if she can't yet)
-books
-drawing /chalk on chalk board
-building blocks /duplo
-videos
-walks in pram
-playdough
That's all I can think of at the moment but if I have any brain waves I'll post them!!!!
hope some of these suggestions help.
