Best Activities for 2 Year Olds | Stories from REAL Mummies

Well, this is my last post in my "Stories from Real Mummies" series. The wonderful March Mummies have assisted me to compile our ultimate list of activity ideas for two year olds. There were so many great suggestions, and a few recurring ones - clear winners in our children's eyes!


Art & Craft


Painting
Drawing
Pasting
Stickers


Sensory


Playdough
Sand pit
Kinetic sand (with dump trucks, diggers & duplo)


Physical Activity

Dancing
Ball play (all types of balls) - kicking, bouncing, ten pin bowling, down the slide at the local park.
Bikes & scooters
Rolling, jumping, running down hills
Yoga

Here's a great link to Yoga for kids from Childhood 101.


Toys

Duplo
Coloured blocks
Trucks
Animals
Dolls


Imaginative Play

Doctor play with medicine kit
Kitchen play
Helping mummy with jobs (cleaning, helping prepare dinner, wiping tables, dusting, unloading dishwasher, sorting cutlery)
Shop or cafe play
Tea parties


Random

Stacking cups
Cooking activities in the kitchen
--------

If you missed them, here are my previous three posts in this series.

And just a final note to any of the March Mummies reading. We really are lucky to be part of such a wonderful online community. Everyone is caring, considerate, respectful, supportive, encouraging and just down right nice. More internet groups and communities should take a leaf out of our book (especially when it comes to raising children!). Thank you all for being part of my parenting journey with Miss M for the past two years. It's been lovely to make some virtual friends (and real life ones too - you know who you are). 

Big things behind the scenes at teacher types!

Eeep!
