I am so excited to start this new blog series! How many times have you looked up the question, “What activity should I do with my toddler today?” I know that’s one of my most googled questions right now.
Whether you’re a stay at home mom, homeschool parent, preschool teacher, or daycare provider; toddler engagement is NO JOKE! We’re all trying to keep them happy and engaged the best we can and with the easiest set of directions.
So, I want to help! This new series will be called “5 Ways to Play,” and will feature 5 different activities you can do with your toddler with the SAME one material. All of these activities will feature the same thing and repurposed to focus on different skills for your toddler. First up; CONSTRUCTION PAPER! I hope these activities help make setting up and designing activities for your toddler easier and less stressful!
Activity 1: Shape Sort Sticky Wall
This activity was adapted from Busy Toddler, you can read her original post here.
At 22 months old, Little Miss has started to notice basic shapes all around her. We constantly talk about circles and squares the most frequently because those are the shapes we see most often. In particular her favorite “circle cheese,” has become an important part of her daily routine! I wanted to take this sudden interest in shapes and run with it using materials I already had in the house.
I simply used construction paper that I had from other projects into different colored circles and squares. Once I got the handle of how to hang up the Con-Tact paper, Little Miss really enjoyed this activity. I should note that in order to successfully hang up the Con-Tact paper, I put painters tape on the back of the corners and peeled it back as I hung it up. Then I followed the edges all around with tape to make it firmly stick onto the door.
I had originally planned to tape this Sticky Wall inside the house, but Little Miss insisted on putting it outside; so we followed her lead! I drew a circle and square at the top of the Sticky Wall with permanent marker and guided her to sort the different colored shapes.
As she sorted, we discussed the shapes, whether they looked the same as the other ones she had already stuck to the wall, and we also discussed the different colors she was choosing. Simple conversation with real-world examples is one of the best methods I am finding that really works with Little Miss!
