    Toddler Bathtime activities

    You get two for the price of one here so to speak. You get to bath your toddler before bedtime. Also at the same time they get to learn hand eye co-ordination again. you need to provide plastic cups and jugs to allow your toddler to learn how to pour water in and out of these containers.

    It may not seem like much but over time it's amazing how skilled they become without you realising.

    You can also let then use toddler to draw all over the bath. Don't panic though they wipe off easily with a sponge. Then you can find thousands of toddler here on ebay.

    Thread the bobbin

    This is another one of those tradional toddler learning activities thats been played for generations. Simply save finished sewing thread bobbins or ask your family and friends to save them. Then get a length of thin cord and tie a simple knot in one end. Then at the other end of the cord wrap a small amount of tape around as tight as you can. This will stop your cord fraying.

    Now your show your toddler how to thread the cord through the center hole in the bobbin once. Now ask them to thread on a few more bobbins. You'll be surprised how quickly they pick it up. This toddler learing activities game teaches them dexterity and the beginings of how to count.

    Sorting pasta shapes

    This one is good as most of us usually have some dried pasta in the kitchen. It's best with about 3 different lots of shaped pasta. Pour into a big bowl then get your toddler to help with seperating the different pasta shapes into 3 seperate containers.

    Once they have finished the task give them a little treat. Giving your toddler treats after completing little tasks like this or finishing a game or a jigsaw. this reinforces rewards for good behaviour and no treats when they misbehave.

    Sorting buttons

    Yet another of those old traditional favorite toddler learning activities that can keep toddlers amused for hours.

    All the while learning while playing again.

    You can ask then a make a pile of big buttons and a pile of small buttoms. Then to see if they can recognise any colors, ask them to seperate just the black ones

    Then eventually ask them to separate then in to two piles. One pile with two sew holes and one pile with four sew holes. As you can see the possibilities with buttons are endless.

    Just a word of caution with buttons NEVER leave them unattended while playing with buttons as they may swallow one and choke.

    Color Boxes

    This is a simple little toddler learning activity that helps your child learn about colors while having fun. you can also use it as a fun math games for kids.

    Ask your toddler to put the red objects into the red box. Then the other objects into the right color box. Once they get good at doing this kids learning activty. You can ask them to count the number of things in each box after they have finished.

    1. We made these colored boxes using old tissue boxes. Then covered the front and top with colored tissue paper cut to the size of the box using a kids glue stick. Your toddler can help with doing this job.

    After the tissue paper is stuck on the top you will need to cut out for the hole on the top. Then you are almost ready to start playing this toddler learning game.

    2. Then to get started you will need some small objects with colors to match your boxes. We used some things from our toddler crafts stuff. Some colored matchsticks, buttons and minin pom poms.
