Bronchitis has stopped play in the Edwards household. So we have been looking back at our top 10 DIY toddler activities from our 100 day play challenge.
I have never enjoyed art. As a teacher I always relied on my Teaching Assistant to help with displays as I appear to have zero artistic ability. So I was surprised when I enjoyed making DIY activities for Adam. Here are our top 10 DIY activities:
I love our felt board because it has so much future potential. Although it is set up for the songs ‘5 Little Ducks’ and ‘5 Little Speckled Frogs’ this particular felt board can be used for a range of pond related stories, songs and role play. It was simple to make through the power of tracing!
This easy to make light box will open endless play opportunities and was easy to make.
What better activity to use on the DIY Light Box. It was a great way to save money and was straight forward to make – despite my first attempt at using a hot glue gun.
This activity is super for indoor and outdoor play – and uses up lots of toddler energy!
A great non-messy mark making activity which aids fine motor control.
Although Adam seemed more concerned that his Daddy was laying face down on the floor rather than playing with the car track I think the t-shirt will provide lots of fun in the future.
This activity brought back fond memories of my first ever class. It is a lot quieter with only one child playing on it!
We finally found a use for all the milk bottle tops I have been collecting!
This activity will become more popular with Adam once he is older but was straight forward to make – even more so when I get a craft knife!
A great way to recycle all those broken wax crayons!
