Top 5 Things to Do With a Toddler

Things to do with a Toddler: Conquer Boredom

Looking to shake up playtime? We’ve got plenty of things to do with a toddler. Because they are naturally curious beings, they love to explore everything.🔎 From strange new sounds to curious smells, every sensory experience creates another new dendrite. This makes finding things to do with your toddler both easy and exciting. Everything you do, your toddler wants to do too. Below is a list of fun activities that you can do with your toddler anytime.

Things to do with a Toddler: Roleplay

Toddlers love to imitate animals and other creatures. Don’t be afraid to bring out your inner child on this one. It might feel strange at first, but your toddler will appreciate watching your face change as you make strange new sounds with your voice. Simple animal sounds are a great place to start. Make those sounds funny and grin while making them. Your toddler will learn faster and have fun doing it too!

Things to do with a Toddler: Bust Out the Toys

This is especially helpful for developing social skills and learning to share with others. Choose toys that are age appropriate to keep learning fun and interesting. Toys with varying textures and sounds will help with sensory play. These can be with smooth plastic community figures, toy animals, soft plushies, and more. The list is endless so long as it’s safe for your toddler to play with. Some toys that are geared for older children have small parts that your child can choke on. Always check the toy first to be sure it’s okay to use and you should be good to go.

Things to do with a Toddler: Finger paint

Art is always fun for toddlers to explore. Finger painting is a great way for your little one to explore both colors and texture at the same time. You will need special finger paint paper. Don’t use printer paper or the heavy paint will bleed through. Practice making simple shapes or a cute landscape with pretty trees and flowers! The choice is yours, just be sure to keep it simple or baby will become frustrated and bored. The best part of finger painting is the easy clean up! It all comes off with water.🎨 

Things to do with a Toddler: Go for a Walk Outside

This is so simple and easy and it can be done anytime in almost any weather. Toddlers are natural explorers. Every rock, leaf, and twig is something new to discover. Point out any wild animals you spot along the way. Even time in the backyard is time you can spend together. Discover wild flowers, “scary” bugs, and more!

Things to do with a Toddler: Explore Music

If you happen to have musical instruments in the home, have your toddler run their fingers down the strings on your guitar, or perform a simple song. If you play piano, this is something your child can bang away on while inadvertently learning their scales at the same time! Add some singing into the mix for more fun and laughter.🎹 

Although these are a list of things you can do with your toddler, don’t be afraid to be a little creative. Use this list as a guide to really get inspired. Take your child new places and introduce him or her to the world. Playdates are a great way to socialize for both of you. Children’s museums can be a lot of fun too. Just remember to take lots of pictures! The memories will be well worth it in the future
