Keeping Busy in the Kitchen with Flour

Looking for a simple, quick, easy, spur-of-the-moment activity to engage your little one whilst you are cooking? Put a little flour on your floor! That's right, straight on the floor! It's messy but the kids will love it, and let's face it, you probably need to sweep that floor at the end of the day anyway so clean up is not as bad as you may think.

This idea came from my sister-in-law and I loved it so much I had to try it for myself. My little one thought it was great and happily played away giving me time to cook!

If you need more ideas to keep your little one busy in the kitchen you can read about how we kept busy with egg cartons, pots and pans or magnets and bath toys.

Do you have anything that helps keep the kids entertained whilst you are cooking? Let me know below or tell us about it on our Facebook page!



  1. Alison, hi,
    I love your idea, so simple yet so effective :) I see you are well aware of how good it is for toddlers to be allowed the 'messy play'. Love the post :) Damjana

    1. I'm a big, big fan of messy play!! The messier it is, the better the fun!
      Thank you Damjana :)
