It can be hard to get a toddler to sit on their new potty or the toilet. Create a special project especially for that time.
Sometimes it’s hard to get a child to want to sit on their new potty or the toilet throughout toilet training. Create a special project for that time that they can only do while they are sitting on the potty or toilet? Turn your child into a ‘Potty Picasso’!
Mount the chalk board or dry erase board at the bottom of the bathroom wall right next to where the potty or toilet sits. Explain to your child about this magical board, that he can only draw on it, not the wall, and only when he’s sitting on his potty or toilet.
When he’s sitting on the potty or toilet, give him a few dry erase markers or chalk and let him create away. He can either add to an existing masterpiece each time, or part of the fun can be erasing his art each time and starting over.
