Jack was gifted this seersucker backpack for his first birthday by my sister. We keep it stocked with quiet activities and snacks to keep him entertained during church. This has become extremely important to us in the last couple of months as Jack has developed an irrational dislike of bible hour and has been sitting in big church with us. He loves going to class before big church, but one mention of bible hour and he gets hysterical. Toddlers are weird.
The most important thing we put in his church bag is Smarties. There are none pictured above, because I don't dare show them to him. He would eat as many packages as he could. It is the first thing he looks for each Sunday morning.
Other items that keep him quiet, pictured left to right:
And by quiet, I mean they each buy us about 30 seconds of peace. ;)
- Bible--doesn't really keep him quiet, but he is proud of it.
- Buzz Lightyear
- Melissa & Doug Water Wow--These are reusable and are perfect for road trips, airplanes, restaurants, church, etc.
- Melissa & Doug Color Blast--The marker only marks on the paper and not on the church pew, etc. Jack doesn't have markers at home, so I think these are special treat for him.
- Tegu Magnets--These wooden magnets are so much fun and I love that they come in a convenient carry case.
