Homemade Playdough: Make your own playdough using flour, salt, water, and food colouring. You can find various recipes online. Provide cookie cutters, rolling pins, and other tools for shaping and creating. But who has the time to make it themselves! We have great dough sets and accessories at CleverStuff.
Indoor Obstacle Course: Create a simple obstacle course using pillows, cushions, tunnels (you can use chairs and blankets), and soft toys. Encourage your toddler to crawl, climb, and explore the course.
Nature Hunt: Go on a nature hunt in your backyard or a nearby park. Give your toddler a small basket and ask them to collect items like leaves, flowers, or rocks. Talk about the different colours and textures as you explore.
Water Play: Fill a basin or sink with water and provide cups, spoons, and bath toys for your toddler to play with. You can also add food colouring to the water to make it more visually appealing.
DIY Painting: Set up an art station with washable paints, brushes, and large sheets of paper. Let your toddler explore their creativity by painting freely or using objects like sponges or toy cars to create different textures. We have lots of paint and craft items as well.
Story Time: Create a cozy reading corner with pillows and blankets. Choose age-appropriate books and spend time reading to your toddler. Encourage them to interact by asking questions or letting them turn the pages.
