25 Quick and Easy Activities for Toddlers
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve been scrambling to find an activity for my two-year-old, G, to fill some time.
If you have a toddler, I’m sure you have been there too!
I need activities that only require every day supplies I have around the house and don’t require a ton of set up time.
That’s why I’ve been on a quest to find super simple, quick and easy activities for little ones.
I love these 25 quick and easy activities for toddlers – I’ve already done many of these already with G!
