How to stop toddler from hurting baby for attention

My 3 year old daughter keeps getting on top of my 1 year old daughter to make her cry to get attention when I’m getting food ready for them in the kitchen or tidying up. She’s also made her baby sister fall many times when she’s standing by the baby gate so I have to come over. I’m trying not to react as I’ve read that’s what she wants but I can’t do nothing either. I have to stop what I’m doing and keep my youngest daughter from getting hurt. She’s 1 and she crawls and wants to move so I can’t keep her in the high chair or in confined space.  

My 3 year old gets plenty of undivided attention from me during the day and she even gets a whole day dedicated to her. So what can I do to stop this behaviour?
