As 3 different pots and pans bubbled and popped on the stove, my bored toddler clung to my leg and pulled at my shirt. As I thought to myself "Ahhh, I'm going nuts!" I knew I needed to think of something fast and easy! So, I reached into the drawer where I keep the tin foil, saran wrap, wax paper, and cling wrap, and pulled off a big piece of each one and laid it out for L. As he unwrapped his arms from my legs I cried "I'm free!"and off he went to explore these new objects!..and of course I snapped a few pictures in between the hectic dinner rush...which is why some of the pics below are kinda blurry.
Even if you JUST have aluminum foil, it will be enough to keep your child entertained and interested for a bit! Aluminum foil is remarkably squeezable and makes great sound effects! They can stomp on it, squeeze it into a ball, unwrap it again, tear it up, etc.
The wax paper, and saran wrap were a hit too! He liked the way the wax paper crunched when he balled it up, and he had fun sticking the saran wrap to things in the kitchen.

Kinda blurry, but here he is twisting the saran wrap
Stomping the tin foil bc he liked the crackling sound
Try This: Foil can be wrapped around all sorts of objects, or bent into sculptured shapes, or even fingerpainted upon!
