Play Ideas for Toddlers

Toddlers are my favorite! I know that’s an unpopular opinion in our “terrible twos” dreading culture, but I love them.

Don’t get me wrong, toddlers have tested and stressed and exhausted me to no end over my years as a teacher and parent, but still – it is my favorite age.

Toddlers are just so sweet, curious, opinionated, independent…oh they’re just so much fun.

Engage your toddler with one of the awesome activities below to encourage development and have fun.
