what do you and your toddler do each day? Lock Rss

Looking for ideas for my two toddlers¨!!
Monday - stay at home day, housework etc, maybe a playdate
Tuesday - am - music group pm - friend from music over for lunch and play.
Wednesday - am - playgroup pm - at home chilling
Thursday - am - art group pm - home
Friday - am - community cafe - pm - lunch out with the cafe girls
Saturday - family day
Sunday - am - sport for me - church for Dad and kids x 2 - pm - weekly dinner with my inlaws.

While at home we do baking, drawing, homeopathic item play, painting, blackboard, car-racing, hide and seek, go to the park, DS#1 plays in garage with dad if home, (DS#2 still to young for that.)

Hope given you some ideas..
Lottie

Thanks for the reply.

DO you find one might not like something or isn't ready for it developmentally? What do you do then?
Hi,
I try to do a range of activities everyday - creative, active, imaginative play, social, skills and literary.
We have a "busy box" for our two toddlers (aged 2 and 3) - filled with a selection of colouring books, crayons, glue sticks, pics from magazines, paper, stickers,etc and they'll do some art and craft most mornings while I tend to their 9 month old sister. A range of puzzles for different abilities are also handy for quiet play. Blocks and "Little people" can be used by different ages quite successfully. Some active play everyday - riding trikes,kicking the ball or walking to a nearby park. Teaching basic skills - making the bed, putting clothes away, helping hang clothes on the line. We also read everyday without fail (big on reading - I'm a highschool English teacher), and visit the local library once a week to borrow books. A couple of playdates/playgroup each week also helps with developing social skills.
We tend to group similar activities together (mainly so I can manage them lol) - one might play with playdoh while the other colours in (creative), one will ride their trike at the park while other plays on the swings (active) etc. Playdates can be a little tricky if one isn't keen, so we'll keep those outings fairly brief if need be.
Hope this is of some help smile
Mondays we usually stay at home for housework so my 3 year old and 20 month old will play with play dough or the train set or toys, or watch TV, or draw.
Tuesday is playgroup in the morning and more of what we did on Monday for the afternoon.
Wednesday we visit people or the park or people come to us, and do some washing which they help with.
Thursday is grocery shopping and bill paying in the morning and more washing in the afternoon.
Friday is day care for both of them as I work.
Saturday is swimming lessons.
Sunday is church in the morning and maybe the park in the afternoon.
All week they like to help with the housework, hand me pegs for the washing,help empty the dish washer etc....very helpful smile
They go on the trampoline and ride their bikes on and off throughout the day.
We take a train ride about once a month, for no other reason other than to ride the train.
