How to occupy a toddler less than 5 years old without worrying about it? For this time, I admit that I always found it easier to take care of my children when they were a little older, once they can hold a felt and especially that they listen a little more. Because then there are more activities for toddlers possible.
Between 9 months and 18/24 months, I prefer to observe them, leave them free to do what they want, that is to say, most of the time discover the world ? But it is still good to orient them a little, to give them materials such as toys or everyday objects. At 15 months old, my little girl likes to pencil (so much so that I check that my pens are all looking good, otherwise beware of books!), Playing with the closure of her stroller and “soaking” with water. And yours?
In any case, if you are looking for ideas, peck at these 25 ideas that will not require much (if at all) preparation! For more ideas, take a walk on the blog!
