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



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

Physical Activity

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

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


Coloured blocks

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


Typing on an unplugged keyboard
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!

Human hair wigs are very popular as well as simple to maintain. Human hair wigs are delicately selected. Often unless the lace wigs uk is strong and durable enough it will be rejected for donation or sale for the cause of wig making. There are, however, other options to human hair wigs uk if you are looking for the most realistic and flattering wig possible. It is great to see human hair wigs that are incredibly durable. Many people who sell their lace wigs uk making have strong and beautiful hair, therefore, this particular kind of hair wig is more likely to last and last.
