My last idea will help if your toddler is as active as mine were! Get up and move! Movement creates a type of play like no other. Outside is of course the best type of active play, like running, tagging, jumping, or swimming. But we all know that movement in the house is just as important. Movement is not only big actions, like, animal walks or jumping, but also exploring with our hands! When learning to play through hands, anything goes! For example, make sensory bins, like, filling a bucket with ice cubes and playing with “arctic animals." Make play dough at home and create your favorite “cookies/shapes.” Get out your tongs to move objects from one container to another. Talk about some toddler-concentration and a moment of free time for Mommy!
