Toddler Play with Household Items
55 Play prompts and activity ideas for toddler play with household items.



Why is play important?

Play is an essential part of early childhood. It allows our children a safe way to explore new ideas,experiment and work through stressful times. There are so many wonderful play activities out there for our toddlers and preschoolers but that can get overwhelming.  With so many ideas out there it can even make us feel like we need to buy every little thing to set up activities for our toddlers to play. But, the truth is we have plenty of materials right in our own homes!

Keep it simple, play with household items!

Some of the best play materials are ones that live in our kitchens, closets, bathrooms, and recycling bins.  My goal is to share different activities you can set up for your toddler with common household items to make spending time together as stress free as possible.

That’s why I’m so excited to share this new ebook with you!  I have curated 55 play prompts for you to use with your kids using things you already have in your home! These play prompts are perfect to pull out for a rainy or cold winter day when you need to switch things up but don’t want to leave the house.
