He loves it and he's starting to get used to the action a bit more but still swaps hands
    We do puzzles a lot. His favourite is a huge cat in the hat one that's 1m big.
    We dance and sing.
    Race cars.
    Bake.
    Lots of things that have been said.
    Another good way of getting toddlers to use the scissors properly, is to get them to cut up pieces of playdoh. Gives them more resistance and trains the muscles in their hands at the same time.
    They do this at daycare.

    DD loves having baths, we have a shower over the bath so he will often hop in with me and I'll put the plug in for him and hop out, dress myself and then generally busy myself in the laundry (basically same room) while he plays in the bath.
    He loves helping me cook
    Loves his little trampoline
    Playing trains
    Pushing his babies in his pusher
    Hiding under the doona, that keeps him entertained for ages
    Finger painting on his little table
    Play doh
    Listening to audiobooks
    Reading, both me reading to him and just looking at books himself.
    When i vaccuum I give him the dustbuster so he's actually helping some, LOL. He also does the majority of mopping in our house, I give him a little spray bottle of water and vinegar and a rag and he gets to work on the floors.
