Welcome to day two of our week long series dedicated to the lovely, playful and sometimes willful stage of childhood that is toddlerhood. Yesterday we looked at sensory play and today we’re got some of our favourite ideas for arts and crafts. They’re ideas which are just right for two- and three-year olds (but also great for bigger kids too!)
My daughter is interested in learning how to read so I’m always looking for ways to add words in to our play. She enjoys reading books, but she’s still at the stage where that can feel like hard work sometimes. Adding words into our play gives her lots of opportunities to practice reading but it feels much more like fun than a lesson. Here’s a very simple but effective way to add in some reading to a story telling and art play time :: we’re using speech bubbles!
