My Toddlers can get a little bored and crazy during “school time” so here a a few things I have come up wit
1.) Color:get out lots of paper and crayons
2.) Felt or Magnet Boards: Have lots of people and scenery and they are occupied for awhile
4.) Play Dough
5.) Building Blocks (We have Mega Lego’s & Lincoln Logs)
6.) Stamps: We have a few stamp sets from Melissa and Doug that the kids love to use.
7.) Variety of Preschool games/toys: ‘My Fathers World’ has a good selection of Toddler and Preschool educational toys. Visit their website.
8.) Mini Chalk board: We have one from ‘Handwriting without Tears’ that my 3 year old loves.
9.) Pattern Blocks: We used these for 1st grade math and my 1 year old and 3 year old love them too.
10.) Handwriting Without Tears wooden letter pieces: they love playing with these.
(The toddlers can use the house as their playground of course, but if they want to be with us, I will usually pull out some of these things.)
Please comment and tell us what you like to do with your toddlers while teaching your older children.
