I feel like I am in the exact same boat, but here are a few things that work for us. I recently made my first batch of playdough and it was a HUGE hit. Especially when combined with my actual kitchen utensils and a few pots and bowls. He will "cook" for quite a while on his own. We have also been baking/cooking food for when baby is here almost every day, too, and he loves to help measure the ingredients. Playing in the kitchen sink, again with bowls and measuring tools, is also an almost daily occurrence around here. If I can get him going in a good game with some block structures and matchbox cars, he will usually keep it up for a while as well. Then again, I feel like we have been watching way too much TV here too because it is so darn easy! I am doing ok being almost 39 weeks pregnant for the most part, but I am really worried about what the heck I am supposed to do with a newborn and a two year old!
