If your toddler is anything like mine, he or she is probably constantly on the go. One way to use up toddler’s extra energy is to do fun, creative activities together. So today I want to share some awesome spring activities for toddlers that will not only keep them occupied, but also help with their growth and development.
I’m not a super crafty person, so I personally like activities that are easy to put together–and relatively easy to clean up. Recently Elijah and I did a sensory bin together, and I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner! It was far easier to put together and clean up than I thought it would be, and he had so much fun.
Which has then inspired me to be a bit more proactive in doing organized activities with him. If you’re looking for some fun activities to do with your toddler this spring, keep reading!
