For the past couple of weeks, I have structured his playtime after breakfast to keep him busy while I did chores. What I did was just pretty simple - I set up a "Play Theme Of The Day." This required a bit or organization on my part. First, I grouped all of Caleb's toys according to use - all construction toys, all animal toys, all cars and trucks, and instruments in one storage box. Then for each day, I just chose a theme to set up during his playtime. Next, I arranged all the props needed - toys, books, music, etc. Doing this gave me an hour or so to keep our house together. And until he can set up his own fantasy land, I have to come up with new ideas to keep this active boy busy.
