Check out all the busy bag ideas on pinterest. Always a hit with my 21 month old and the 2.5 year old I babysit.

I was also going to suggest Pinterest. I'm a nanny, and I get a lot of my ideas from there. Search "toddler activities" or "toddler crafts". That would be a good place to start! Good luck! It sounds like you have a good start!

After 12 years of TTC #2, multiple miscarriages, failed infertility treatments, and two failed (not on our end) attempts at becoming foster/adopt parents in two states...we gave up. I stick around for the awesome conversation.
