Finding ways to keep toddlers busy is not always easy! Over the years of parenting three boys, I’ve created lots of simple and fun toddler activities that don’t require a ton of supplies. If you have a toddler, you know there’s no time to set up elaborate activities!
Play is so important for toddlers. Mr. Rogers said it perfectly: “Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is seriously learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”
Children learn so much through play-based learning. They make connections, solve problems, practice language skills, use their imagination, work on motor skills, and so much more!
Did you know that a child’s brain develops most rapidly between birth to age five?! That makes the toddler years a crucial part of their learning and development. I’ve seen firsthand the benefits of toddlers learning through play.
Providing simple invitations to play, such as a sensory bin, will benefit your child cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically. The days may be long, but trust me…the years DO fly by!
