My little G is 15 months old and is still enjoying special activities, either with his big sis or with me (and then he likes to "show off" for daddy!).
Here are some fun ones to try with a little one!
Toothpicks and Sugar Shaker
I bought this sugar shaker at the dollar store and gave G a pile of toothpicks (and of course, I always closely monitor him with any material and never leave him unsupervised!). After a quick demonstration of dropping the toothpick through the hole, G was anxious to try. I think he must have done this a hundred times! It's great for fine motor work!
There are so many things you can do with counting bears, but since G is still so little, we had fun just dropping them in cups, pouring them out, and then doing it all over again. Anything that makes a satisfying clink sound is always fun!
Some large construction paper and a box of crayons is a fun activity to work on together!
Well, until he decided it was even more fun to throw the crayons.
It's all part of the art process, right?
It's also important to exercise those gross motor skills too, and at this age, it's all about climbing, crawling, running, and rolling! G loves his weekly tumbling class where he can do all those things in a fun and safe environment. We go through the city parks and recreation because the classes are so affordable!
Muffin Tin Meal
Oh I was SO excited when I served G his first muffin tin snack! He loved the "buffet" options and quickly cleaned out each well (I used a silicon mold with large openings). I think he really loved the different options and it was a great snack!
15 months old is definitely a fun, busy age!
