I was having a hard time entertaining my 3-year-old son while I scrapbooked. I finally got some of his own supplies together (safety provided) and put it in his own "creative box." Whenever I wanted to scrapbook, we'd take the box out, and work on our own projects. It was like magic! He would work on his own thing, while I worked on mine. It keeps him entertained long enough for me to finish a layout.
