    Default Baby classes when you have older kids

    We stumbled across (not knowing it was on) the baby song session at the library today and DS2 thought it was fabulous. I'd love to take him back but am trying to figure out how to keep DS1 occupied while it's on. Today he just wanted to crawl around and hug all the babies and pretend to be a baby... which didn't quite work as he's four. Nor did his *loud* singing of random words over the actual songs. No one else there has an older child. The only idea I can think of so far is to download a video to the ipad and get some headphones and hope that keeps him amused for a bit? He wasn't interested in looking at books or doing a quiet activity today. What do you do when you have baby classes on?

    To be honest my ds1 just sits and watches and waves. Is there something he is really into that he can do? My son is super enthusiastic about Lego, so I bring a new Lego project for him to do. Like A small firetruck or plane. Yes, I spend a lot on Lego! But perhaps there is something similar that your son could do...even a pile of books if it's in the library?
