Who knows why but lots of toddlers seem to go through a stage when they like to shred up tissues or toilet roll!
You can provide your toddler with some tissues and show her how to rip them up, then put the ripped parts into a tub. This could be the first step to encouraging her to help tidy up as well!
Thid simple and cheap activity can keep some toddlers engrossed for long enough for you to enjoy a hot cup of tea 😉
