We’re mid-way through our special series on activities for toddlers. If you’ve been following along with us you’ll have already seen our ideas for sensory play, arts and craft and math games. Today we’re all about imaginary play, with ideas for setting up a shop, going camping in your playroom, and hosting a posh tea party. We also have ideas for children who love dinosaurs, pirates and dens.
Welcome to day three of our special series that’s Just Right For Toddlers. We’ve already looked at sensory play and arts and crafts, and today our focus is on math games. All our ideas are based on learning through play and math is no exception. We don’t need to try and sit toddlers down at a table and fill in worksheets, when we can explore the same math concepts through games, play and everyday activities.
In these toddler activities we’re looking at learning to count and recognise numbers. We’ve also got ideas that explore shapes and measuring, matching and sorting.

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!)

Welcome to our special week on NurtureStore where we’re focusing on all things toddlers! The ‘terrible twos’ has such a bad reputation but really toddlers are at a wonderful stage of childhood. It’s a time when they are on their feet and ready to explore the world. They’re beginning to chat and to enjoy imaginary play and it’s such a lovely time to see your child’s personality developing. The ideas in our Just Right For Toddlers series are all based on learning through play and cover maths games, early reading and writing, arts and crafts and more. Today, to start our series, here are our favourite ideas for sensory play.
