6 Quick Summer Activities for Your Toddler

6 Quick Summer Activities for Your Toddler
Summer Activities for Your Toddler will keep your toddler engaged and learning this Summer. 
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!
Toddler Tape Collage
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
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.
Toddler Frozen Magnets
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!

Hi. Love your posts! I was wondering about the pompon activity, I don't recognize the cups. You said they're stacking cups but I'm sorry this still doesn't mean anything to me. These look like lids to cups rather than the cups themselves, am I way off? Could you tell me where to purchase these? Please & Thanks. Julie :)

Thanks for the tip on Lakeshore Learning! I've been going to our local library for free activities but I'm going to try this too.

I LOVE the pom pom activity idea at the very beginning of this post! I am so doing that with my Sunshine this next week. Of course I love all of them, but that's my favorite (most likely because I have everything already on hand). Thank you so much for sharing some fabulous ideas!
