Toddlers are always with curiosity. They love to learn new things and they can grab the basic concepts easily. I remember last year when my son was a toddler. He was so active and energetic. He could easily grab concepts such as colours, numbers and letter when I used simple methods to introduce him such concepts.

Below are 3 activities which I did with my toddler. He loved those activities, so I know these are easy and fun activities to do with any toddler.

 

1. Colour sorting game

For this game, you don’t want to spend hours with crafty items. Instead find colourful cups and building blocks. Mix it up and ask your toddler to sort out the clours into the matching cup. This activity will keep him busy while giving the opportunity to learn colours.At the same time this is a good way to improve motor skills of any toddler.

Do you Know these Benefits of Doing Jigsaw Puzzles

Recently I introduced Jigsaw puzzles for my kid and he showed love in solving puzzles with me. He was just above 2 years when I introduced the first puzzle to him and with his interest to solving the puzzles, I added more to our collection. Do you know what happened? Not only my kid, I also attracted to the puzzles and we ended up having a collection of jigsaw puzzles ranging from 9 pieces to more complicated puzzles over 40 pieces. It was a fun activity which we could concentrate our time together.

With our interest to play and solve jigsaw puzzles, I also wanted to find the benefits of playing puzzles and the benefits are really amazing. After reading this post, I am sure you also will start playing jigsaw puzzles as it is a really good way to concentrate your mind!

Benefits of doing jigsaw puzzles

Well, before going for the health benefits of playing jigsaw puzzles, I just want to share my experiences at our home. The puzzles actually can connect all of us. We solve jigsaw puzzles together and it really creates family moments which I am really happy. Playing jigsaw puzzles is one of the entertainment activities which anyone spends time to release the tension of the day. Other than that, below are some of the health benefits you can expect by playing with jigsaw puzzles.

Doing jigsaw puzzles is really helpful for the brain development. Usually left brain thinks logically and right brain is responsible for creative and emotional tasks. However if you use both left brain and right brain together at the same time, your mind power will improve and it gets better day by day. As jigsaw puzzles are such activity which you need to use both left brain and right brain together, that will enhance your brain power while improving efficiency and concentration.

That is why even as adults, it is good to play and solve jigsaw puzzles in order to stimulate your brain power. When you play with your kids, they will also learn to concentrate and solve problems logically which are important skills for any one.

How to find Jigsaw Puzzles?

Finding jigsaw puzzles is not that difficult. You can easily buy jigsaw puzzles with different themes. However, if you don’t organize your jigsaw puzzles this will end up with a mess. You will also spend more time for finding missing puzzle pieces which can also create stressful situation.

If you dont organize properly,these jigsaw puzzles can create a mess too :)

Another way of playing puzzles is by using online puzzles.

  • Always avoid small toys and games from young children which increase possible choking hazards. Toys with removable small parts always increase the choking hazards.
Toy Safety Tips for Toddlers

I always pay attention when he plays with small toys.

  • Strangling is another possible hazard which you should aware of. If the toys are with rope, string or cords, you must be careful when your toddler is playing with such toys. It is always better to keep the strings away from their reach.

Recently I came across of Consumersafety.org which focuses on consumer safety.

Their mission is to make information about recalls and safety-related news about drugs, medical devices, food, and consumer products with easy accessible way to everyone. Actually I opened my eyes once I read their safety guidelines and tips for infant & kids. There are lots more informative details and guidelines which you can read at their site. Have a look and see how you can add the safety guidelines and recalls information for your lifestyle. You can also find the alerts for recalls which are really helpful for you in order to keep your home and loved ones in safe environment.

More Time on Outdoor Activities with My Toddler

There are lots of outdoor activities for toddlers from different games to exploring the nature. Anyway, last few weeks I was busy with my toddler spending more time with him. He is spending the last few weeks of his age 2 and reaching the age 3.I can easily see his changes in behavior. Suddenly he is too active. It is not easier for me to keep him inside the home as he tries activities such as climbing. So, the best is to spend more time on outdoor activities till he use all of his packed energies. 🙂

Outdoor Activities with My Toddler

It is time to explore the things around!

We spent more time on playgrounds and we found new activities rather than just playing. We also spent time on playgrounds at night watching the sky.He always loves exploring insects and things around him.

Is it an insect on this leaf?

I wanted to sit and relax. But as he was running here and there, I was running behind him too. May be I am too worried! 🙂

Outdoor Activities with My Toddler

He found this slide as a good place to read a book. 🙂 At that time there were no other kids at the playground.

The Garden Table near our home/flat is a great place to enjoy some snacks after walking and playing around.We continued using this table for packed lunch and snacks.He loves his new dining experience! 🙂
