Siblings & toys

I have a 15 month old and 3.10 year old and I am struggling with finding safe toys that appeal to and stimulate my older child but are safe for my youngest. We have a very small property so it is hard to zone off areas, my eldest and I will do craft activities and get out lots of her toys when my youngest naps but most of these toys get put back on the shelf when my youngest wakes up as they are all very small items that I am fearful of her choking on. Any advice about how you manage this would be greatly appreicated as I feel like my eldest is getting fed up as most of the toys out are 'baby toys'. Thanks in advance.

Happy land is good

Tea set and mini cooker elc also

Instead of craft try baking?

Save craft stuff for the weekend if you have a DH or DP to entertain the youngest.

Once mine started nursery I no longer felt the pressure to do craft stuff. Tho elc again do 1st paints, like a big felt tip which you could try.

Sorry brief reply, off to school smile

Thanks for your reply. We have Happyland, tea sets and a mini elc cooker that come out frequently just thought they were becoming less appealing to my older daughter. Will have a look at the elc craft stuff. Baking never seems v successful with both of them together!
