Pinned It, Did It: Toddler Activities

My son is a young toddler (15 months) and has been needing some stimulation. It’s still a little hot to play outside all the time so I decided to try some of the activities I pinned.

Paper Tube Car Ramp

Time Spent Preparing:1 minute
Materials Cost: A few cents for Tape, tube was technically trash
Time it Entertained:10 minutes
Clean-Up:Painless

Ten minutes is alot for a toddler to spend on one activity, atleast for mine it is. He loved the car ramp. He played with it the first time for about ten minutes and then was bored and went to something else. I left it out and after his nap he came back to it for a few more minutes until he figured ripping it off the couch would be more fun.

Finger Painting Inside of a Zip Lock Bag

Time Spent Preparing:2 minutes
Materials Cost: A few cents worth of paint, paper and ziplock bag
Time it Entertained: 2 minutes
Clean-Up:Painless

I hate wasting my ziplock bags, I try not to use stuff that just gets thrown away. With that just as a side thought, this activity wasn’t very entertaining for my son. He may just be too young. I won’t be trying this one until he’s a bit older.
