14 June 2017 Update : BugFix: after some pondering I've decided to fix what I think was a bug
in the play on sand interaction (the official one, used even w/o the mod): a Sim could be user
directed to play on a sandcastle currently "used" by another Sim only to get routing failure.

DISCALIMER
This mod will only work if you believe in the power of friendship.
Uhm, my bad, I got this confused with My Little Pony.

Mod Info
Developed and tested on game version 1.67.

Mod Description

- New Terrain Interaction: Play on Puddle (was previously in Child2Toddler2Baby)
This is its right place. Download the updated version (19th April 2017 or a later version) of that mod or you'll have a double.


- Replaced PlayOnSand (Terrain.PlayOnSand and PlayOnSandJig.PlayOnSand) with a version that allows
toddlers too to play on terrain and sandbox.


- New Terrain Interaction: EatSnow (Seasons Required).


- New Objects Interaction: Dance (works on Stereo, BandInstrument, KaraokeMachine and JukeBox)


- New scripted object: a box of crayons. If in a toddler inventory, can be used to scribble on walls.


Tweaking
Each interaction can be disabled from the CONFIGURATION xml. Some of the features
are more or less tunable.

Compatibility


Final Note
The file is so big because there are a lot of textures. The number of animations doesn't help either.

I am very grateful for all your wonderful mods Arsil! Thank you so much. Hoping for a cute toddler-tantrum next (or maybe a "how to make" guide?) ;)

Wow! Wonderful to have so many new activities! I've often lamented that there were no toddler activities to increase the Painting skill and now there is thanks to you

Since you offered, the current box of crayons is embarrassing.
And the crayon used as prop in the animation is... ehm... the object I've used for
the lipstick mod, which was a badly remeshed tootbrush to begin it :P

The mesh is basically a box, but should be bigger than the actual one and with
better UV mapping and texture. If possible, try to make it look good with the pick
up animation (it uses the "bills" carry model pose), but this is not really a priority.

As a reference, I really like this one
The box is part of the table, not sure if the size is right or still too small.
The texture seems good too (but I do NOT want any existing brand, be it
a recognizable name or logo).

Note: I'm not suggesting to rip it from that mesh (that would be crazy,
as I said all it takes is a simple box), it's just for a reference.

I forgot to add a NGMP entry for the crayons, so they can be purchased
with the Generic Food Maker or at the grocery RH. I'll include it at the next update.

I was wondering if the crayons will work for someone who doesn't have UNI, but I remembered that I've got a game with a toddler so I'll try it for myself and let you know.

Thank you for your toddler focus. In Sims 2 that was my 2nd favorite age (after teens), and this may make it my first favorite.

Yes, the crayons work without UNI. And dad discovered why it's not a good idea to be asleep while the toddler is not...

Even though I'd scream if my kid drew on the walls IRL, I LOVE that this was added for our sims -- thank you so much!!!
And the head-banging / rock-on bit made me laugh out loud.
