Need something quick to do today? Check out this list of easy toddler activities.
Easy toddler activities are my favorite activities. I don’t have a ton of time to go running around gathering supplies or making elaborate plans for my toddlers. I need quick. I need easy. I need fast.
When I’m looking for a toddler activity, I’m looking for ones that:
- Use supplies I already have
- Take less than 2 minutes to set up
- Have a high likelihood that my toddler(s) will play for more than 5 minutes (hopefully 15-20 minutes)
How cool would it be to have pre-planned activities each day?! Check out Playing Preschool: 190 days of at-home learning.
I’ve search the Internet for more than 40 easy toddler activities to share.
You are going to love the activities that I’ve found. They all fit my easy activity criteria and will definitely help you make it to nap time.
