Fun Things To Do With a Toddler

Published April 24, 2012        by Sarah

abbybatchelder1 150x150 Fun Things To Do With a ToddlerToddlers are little bundles of curiosity, liveliness, and enthusiasm.  Most parents wish they had even a fraction of the energy that these kids have!  Toddlers are usually up for most anything (except eating their veggies or cleaning their rooms); so parents have a lot of terrific options for playtime.  Here are some great activities to do with your little one. Playtime! Freeze dance. Put on your toddler’s favorite upbeat music and start the dancing.  Turn off the music at random intervals.

Go to the park or playground.  If you have a community one nearby, take advantage! If not, check out Read more

Many times, family members or friends will sneak cloth diapers into diaper cakes or diaper bags because they're firm believers and it's no wonder why! The benefits for your child are equally important to saving money: cloth diapered babies tend to have less diaper rash and skin irritation and they will probably be potty-trained before their disposable diaper-wearing peers. If you are hesitant to use cloth because you fear sticking your baby in the hip with a big diaper pin or you wonder if you'll be able to wrap them correctly in order to prevent leakage, Read more

That’s when a bassinet or Moses basket comes in handy. A bassinet is going to be your best friend during the first few weeks Read more
