Oh, poor baby.  🙁  Hmmm, things to keep her quiet…  How about bubbles, stickers, finger puppets, and arts/crafts projects?  Maybe practice stacking blocks and knocking them down?  You can try wooden puzzles or interactive books (Sesame Street makes these great cloth books with buttons she can push for sounds).  Banging on pots and pans or anything that will make loud noises might keep her occupied for a while, as well as practicing taking things out and putting things into a container.  I remember my daughter once spent a good 45 minutes taking crayons out of a crayon box and then putting them back in.

Oh, and Dirty Delete LOVED tearing up magazines!  That would keep her attention for a good period of time, too.  🙂

My son broke his at 14 months.  He continued to crawl on it and act normally.  The pedi ortho guy said it was just a crack, no risk of displacement, and to let him do what he was physically comfortable with.   If it hurt, he would stop.  

It healed really quickly.  Within 2 weeks, it was almost healed.
