Keeping my 2 year old busy this summer has been a fun challenge! Here are six quick Summer Activities for Your Toddler that we both love!
Summer Activities for Your Toddler – Pom Pom Push
Flip over stacking cups (we like THESE) and have your tot push a pompom through the correct color. I promise it’ll be exciting as he “finds” the hidden pompom and it’s really taught G his colors!
Summer Activities for Your Toddler – Tape Collage
Masking tape collages are super fun. If it’s too hard to tear, you can tear and he can place them on the paper. He is always very proud of his creations!
Summer Activities for Your Toddler – Painting
The next time you’re at the craft store, pick up a couple of birdhouses. In my area, they’re only $1 a piece and SO much fun. My 6 year old did the one on the left and the two year old did the one on the right. We like to use THIS paint for easy clean up.
Summer Activities for Your Toddler – Ice Magnets
This one is a fun, COOL activity! Freeze some heavy duty magnets in an ice cube tray. Pop them out and give your tot a magnet wand to explore! It’s even fun as it melts!
Summer Activities for Your Toddler – Chalkboard Painting
We LOVE our chalkboard-painted table top. After we doodle with chalk, I give G a paintbrush and some water. He can “magically” erase the drawings!
Summer Activities for Your Toddler – Free Crafts
See if you have a Lakeshore Learning store nearby! EVERY Saturday, they have FREE crafts for kids and they are SO fun! G looks forward to it all week!
