Here are some amazing summer activities for toddlers to keep them entertained in a productive and physically active manner.
- Water play:
Toddlers love to play with water and summer is the best time to incorporate the water play in your science activity.
You can create a water sensory station at home and let your kids explore and experiment with the concept of float and sink. Just take a tub and fill it with water. In a separate bowl put some random stuff like rock, feather, key, coin, stick, bottle cap, leaf, etc.
Give two bowls and ask your toddler to separate the floating and sinking items. Look for more objects in your house and keep experimenting with your kids.
- Balloon Tennis:
Parents want their kids to be healthy and active but since parents are so busy themselves that they don’t put any extra effort to encourage them in healthy playing activities. The use of mobile phones and laptops has ruined the toddlers.
Balloon tennis is a simple game that requires just one balloon and two paper plates. With the help of a glue gun, attach the stick to the paper plates to make a tennis bat. Play this game with your toddler, this helps improve their gross motor skills.
- Color Hunt:
Coloring hunting is a fun game for toddlers. Take all the basic colors and make a paint card. Just put one stroke of each color on a card sheet. Give it to your kid and ask him to collect at least one item of the same color from the paint card.
