On Monday I finally got out Amelia's crayons from the nursery. I had bought them a few weeks back but had forgotten to sit down with her and let her draw. Every time we eat out she loves to play with the crayons whilst sat in the highchair so I thought I'd give them a go at home too. Of course she wanted to eat them and draw on every thing but the paper although she did finally get the hang of it.
Recently I have been wanting to get Amelia to play with new things, and as she is always rummaging through our kitchen cupboards I took out some pots and pans and uncooked pasta and let her go wild. To begin with she just sat there banging on the pots but she did move the pasta back and fourth amongst the pots without being shown and of course it ended up all over the floor! She also loves playing with pegs every time I put the washing on the line so I grabbed a handful and gave them to her in a plastic bowl to play with. It's surprising what small things can keep a toddler entertained!
If anyone has any other suggestions on what you do with your little one for fun let me know! I also have a post coming up soon on Summer activities for Toddlers for a Matalan challenge I'm participating with so keep an eye out with that for some tips!
