Toddler Activities for Active Children

Don't think your child is ready to sit down with a crayon? There are many other activities that can reinforce basic concepts such as color, numbers and alphabet while also enhancing gross motor skill. We have come up with a few simple games that you can do outside with few materials. Keep in mind that an activity at this age may be only 5 minutes. The amount of time will continue to increase if you are consistent with how you set up, and how often you engage in any structured activity.
