Threading Noodles - I used 3 different colors of the $1 noodles and used a steak knife to cut the slices. I tied a few with yarn and the kids were busy for a few hours. After my kids are bored with them, I may bring them to Sunday School occasionally for the toddlers to play with. by rochelle

I got this idea from a fellow elementary music teacher in my district. Cut pool noodles into 4 and use as rhythm sticks for the little ones. It's safe and not nearly as loud! I just got finished cutting up this set (super fast and easy with a serrated knife) from noodles I bought online. Can't wait to try them! by carlani

Ball Pit - i think this would be fun for a first birthday party. get one of the bigger blow up pools when summer is close to ending so it is super cheap and fill the bottom with balls. the bigger pool will keep you from having as much come out all over the place and let more kids play. great for parties where there will be a lot of toddlers in attendance and you dont really get to plan 'games'. :D by wendi
