If you’re looking for a fun craft for toddlers to learn about bugs and other garden animals, you’ve come to the right place! This toddler bugs craft can be done inside on a rainy day or outside in your backyard where the bugs are. You’ll need to help your toddler with this craft, but they’ll learn about bugs as well as getting some fine motor practice.
Our new favorite summer activity is making a sidewalk chalk obstacle course. It’s a great low prep gross motor activity that toddlers and preschoolers love to do over and over.
Here’s how we set ours up and how you can continue to keep it fresh and fun every time you do it.
We as parents are always trying to keep our babies safe. That’s basically what parenting is all about. Unfortunately, we are humans, and we can forget that our baby is in the backseat of the car when we lock it and walk away. But there are ways you can prevent forgetting your baby in a hot car even if you’re a sleep deprived parent of a newborn.
Now that my toddler can run around and play outside, she can’t get enough of it. Unfortunately, Mommy is prone to heat exhaustion and heat stroke so I can’t be outside for too long in the summer without overheating and getting sick.
But all of that changed when I found a solution and now I’m able to prevent heat exhaustion and keep cool for longer periods of time outside in the summer sun. And bonus! I’ve got a giveaway for you!
Scavenger hunts are not only fun, they’re educational, too. It’s easy to get creative to make up your own, or modify any of these fun ideas to make it fit for your area and the age of your child.
For older kids you will want to make it harder, and for younger toddlers make the scavenger hunt easy enough to keep them interested while still teaching them important skills.
