40+ Fun Activities for Two Year Olds

Last year I shared with you my list of fun activities for one year olds, a list of all the cool stuff my daughter had enjoyed doing when she was one. Somehow another year has passed already so now it’s time to share with you my list of fun activities for two year olds!


Two is a fun age (apart from the terrible two bits!) when there’s loads of exploring and learning about the world. Sensory play has continued to be really popular here but crafting has also got more popular as well as lots of fun stuff outdoors! Hopefully you’ll find something fun to do with your kids here that you’ll love as much as they do!

Want to make sure you remember all these fun ideas? Make sure that you bookmark this page or pin an image so that you can refer to it again and again throughout the year! Want even more ideas? Throughout the year I share themed ideas for preschoolers and toddlers so just pop one of those words into the search bar and you’ll see all of our latest inspiration – be it for summer, Halloween or Christmas! I’ve also rounded up all the activities I’ve done with my daughter each year so if you check the links at the end you’ll find our lists for activities for one, three and four year olds too – many of which I’m certain your two year old will love too!
