How To Keep Twins Occupied For 10 Minutes

Ok, this is where we (who already have twins) share with each other and with those who are expecting twins what little things we do to keep our twins occupied long enough to take a shower or whatever else we need to do! Make sure to include your twins' age group or what age group your tip is good for. I give my one year olds an ice cube in the high chairs. It keeps them busy enough so I can get the dishes done... I also fill the free similac diaper bag up with their toys and then carry it around for a couple of minutes. Then I set it down somewhere near the twins and they think I've left a bag unattended! It takes them about 10 minutes for them to get all their toys out! And for some reason empty water bottles seem to be fun, too!

sphinx, that's a great idea! I'm going to try that, my twins are also one year (well, 13 months anyway). I do something similar, i put all of their toys in the laundry basket and leave the room and they spend abut 10 minutes emptying it. I wish I knew why they love it so much. I also spread a big blanket on the floor and they love to roll on it. I can keep them occupied for a good 15 minutes just with a blanket and a few pillows on the floor. Great thread!!

when my twins first learned how to crawl over their Boppy Pillows, they would keep doing it over and over, so now I have 4 Boppy pillows but they kinda grew out of that so I think I'm going to wash them and sell them on eBay. I guess they were about 6-8 months old when they did that. lol... my twins do the laundry basket thing, too! They also will play peek-a-boo with each other if I give them a blanket but they both have to be in the mood for that one.
