We’ve shared so many activities for toddlers over the last couple of years that I figured the time had come to put them all in one place and make it a bit easier to find! One year olds and two year olds are great fun to do activities with but I know from experience you often need more than one idea up your sleeve! This page will help you find tons of inspiration with sensory bins, sticky walls,crafts and more.
Activities for Toddlers

Before I go any further I have a confession to make. Before I made the images for this post I thought it would be a good idea to count up how many activities are actually included in the links from this post so I went through and just added up all the seasonal posts. Without removing any crafts for toddlers it came to over 500 which just sounded crazy big. So I went back and took out all the crafts I could find and it was still over 250 and that was without including a couple of round ups too. So I’ve written this up as 200+ activities for toddler which hopefully doesn’t sound too intimidating but instead will be a useful resource for you to find ideas through out the year. It’s all set out so you should be able to find what you want quite easily.
First up are the activities from this site – the majority of which are ones which I did with my toddler, then you’ll find some round ups I’ve made of activities for toddlers for each season or big occasions in the year – we’ve got them all covered. Most of these have some crafts for toddlers included but if you want some ideas that are just craft specific you’ll find a link at the end of this post to where we keep all of those! Next up is some themed activities for toddlers which I’ll be adding to over the next few months and finally you’ll find my recommendations for what I think are the best buys for toddler activities – the ones that we’ve used time and time again. This post is one that I’ll continue to add to over the next year so do come back for more ideas and inspiration!

My Favourite Buys for Toddler Activities
Pom poms are a great one for toddlers to help them strengthen the muscles in their fingers and practice their hand eye coordination to and of course play doh is always a brilliant one for that too! A slightly more unusual one is contact paper which we’ve used for so many crafts and activities for toddlers – it’s perfect for making sticky walls or simple suncatchers. One of the things my kids loved most was a water table – in the summer it’s great to play without outside and in the winter we brought it in and used it for sensory play.
