Coming up with new ways (that don’t break the bank!) to keep toddlers busy can be tough sometimes. I’ve been experimenting with a few activities over the last few months and I thought I would share my favorites.
1. Dot Painting
Walker LOVES this. I have to coach him to be gentle though so he doesn’t make holes in the paper, but this is for sure a big hit. One day I drew “I love Daddy” on a piece of paper and let Walker decorate it to give to him. Also, it’s a great activity for learning colors. I bought our dot paint set at Wal-Mart for around five bucks.
2. Cooking Basket
I went to Dollar Tree and bought several kitchen spoons, cups, etc and also some pom pons. I keep this basket in the kitchen and pull it out when I need Walker to be entertained for a bit. He loves scooping up the pom pons and stacking the cups. This is also a great activity for color sorting.
