    Can I ask what positive things you can say about him and you?

    What does he love doing with you? What are your silly games?

    Maybe rather than focussing on what bad stuff he is doing and what consequence he needs and what he should/should not do just have some silly fun.

    Not organised activity.

    As for entertaining he does not need entertaining. Leave out random toys/activities and let him figure it out.

    He loves playing with water & in the sandpit. Sometimes he likes to dance in a silly way with me. He likes me to 'run' so he can chase me.

    Positives about him - he's very sweet, smart, can be very kind, very loving

    Have you tried water in a bucket with a paint brush? This activity can give my ds a good hour of entertainment

    Focus on the good for a few days. Its still hot weather so maybe rather than a consequence tell him 'nappy change then we can splash in the bath if we use gentle hands/feet'

    In the afternoons when he is overtired use his love of water/sand and let him splash in the bath/outdoor shell pool. Or play in sand. If it is outside then he can be messy. No need for park as it is small enough to fit on a small balcony. I have done that with DS when younger.

    Oh and make it a game.

    Cleaning up is a fun game. Run around and whoever picks up the most at the count of 10 wins. Same with nappy changes. And everything else.

    Channel the voices of people from kids shows. The ridiculously happy ones that say silly things and lame things.

    Be that person. He is 2. Let him be 2. Yes there are boundaries but its not all consequences.

    Further to this, check if they have a cleaning up song they use at daycare that he already knows. My daughters daycare has a song they put on about cleaning up and they use it consistently every time it's cleanup time. When my daughter is reluctant to clean up, we put the song on and instantly it's a fun thing for her to get as much put away before the song ends. We also have races with her to see who can get more toys put away before the end of the song. It only goes for about 2 minutes so it's short enough to keep little ones engaged for the whole time. We've been doing this since she was about 2. Even if they don't have a song at daycare, find one on you tube (this is one my daughter likes: https://youtu.be/oY-H2WGThc8 )
