Keeping Your Toddler Busy - Toddler Talk Thursday

Check out the hosts of this fun weekly link-up, Family and Life in Las VegasCrazy about My Baybah, and My Life as a Sippy Cup Mom!

This week's topic is:
"How do you keep your toddler entertained in difficult situations - grocery store, doctors' office, etc?"

It doesn't take much to keep Katie entertained. 
Keeping her entertained and quiet is a whole different issue...

Grocery stores and even doctor's offices aren't usually too difficult for us, just so long as she can talk.
She is a talker.

Church is the hardest for us right now, because of her chatty personality. We have worked on this a lot with her and we're starting to see success! 
We keep her involved during the service as much as possible, and then during the sermon, (which is usually 45 minutes long!) we bring out her special "purse" that contains a special toy or two and some crayons and paper and maybe a little book.

She at least whispers when she feels the need to communicate, and she mostly plays quietly with what we've brought.

Where it isn't essential for us to be quiet, (waiting in doctors' offices, etc,) we read books, or I'll tell her stories, (or she tells me stories, which is much more entertaining! She has an amazing imagination for a 2-year-old!)

So how do you keep your toddler entertained during times when they need to be quiet? 
I would love your tips!

At our church we hand out Bible related activity sheets for the little ones to do during the service that are Bible related. Maybe you could print off your own Bible themed colouring pages.
