If one thing that the corona-virus pandemic has taught us is – resilience.

Parents working remotely at home are trying to juggle between their job responsibilities and taking care of their children.

What a better way to engage your toddler than with these super fun at home toddler activities! Read our go-to checklist for enjoyable activities that your toddler would thank you for!

 

Using All Senses

  • At this stage your toddler explores the environment around him/her through their senses. For example: their sense of sound, smell, taste, touch, and sight are a way to understand their surroundings while interacting with others. 
  • So, sensory activities can help your toddler develop good fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination along the way.
  • One special at home sensory activity would be to put some pasta or beans in a larger container with measuring cups or scoops. Your toddler can then scoop the pasta and fill it in another small container. Check out these super fun sensory activities

 

Reading Activities

  • Another engaging at home toddler activity is reading! Reading boosts creativity, enriches reasoning and vocabulary skills.
  • Not to mention that reading activities are essential to help your toddler connect sounds to words – a key skill in developing literacy foundation.
  • Also, reading books and stories that include special rhyme and repetition are a great example. Let your toddler take the lead and set their imagination free!

 

Pump Up The Heart!

  • According to the Dubai Health Authority, toddlers need around 180 minutes per day of active physical activity.
  • Physical activity, even if done at home, can reduce stress and build up strong muscles and bones.
  • Whether doing yoga moves, or dancing to a song, the opportunities are endless! Check out these 15 indoor activities!
