Adam and I wanted to share with you our top 10 play activities from the 100 day toddler play challenge. It was hard to choose as we had great fun but these activities stand out the most. Many of the activities continue to be used several weeks or months later.
I loved the simplicity of this activity and how effective it looked in our living room. The track lasted a week so it was worth the time spent setting it up. Even now Adam will move his cars along the sofa where the masking tape car track had been.
I had never considered using the bath tub to play in but this activity has opened up a whole new world of messy play.
This was the first time Adam really enjoyed painting. He focused for ages and created some great paintings which are displayed in our kitchen.
This was the first activity Adam got heavily involved in. The rice continues to be used as a Busy Box activity.
As Adam’s love for Alphablocks increases these are being played with more.
This adds a new dimension to a peg puzzle and will extend its usage. Adam loves saying who each person is when lifting up the puzzle piece.
3 months on and Adam still plays with the sensory bags. They haven’t deteriorated at all and have been battered around a fair few times.
I was amazed by how 2 simple food ingredients could make Adam play for 50 minutes!
This is a long term activity that is aiding Adam’s number recognition. He also brings me a Numtum whenever he wants to watch the programme on TV.
This activity was great to watch Adam’s concentration as he tried to fill up the water bottle with pom poms. It was also great for his fine motor skills.
