Play activities that don’t cost the earth but will mean the world to your little one. Adam and I have just completed a 100 day toddler play challenge! We had a lot of fun and wanted to share our adventures with you. Below you will find all the activities we completed throughout the 100 days. You can find out more about why we are blogging and what has inspired us.
How do you navigate around Adventures of Adam? All the activities have been grouped by the amount of preparation time needed and adult input required. These can be found using either the top menu or the right hand sidebar links. Each activity is graded on how much preparation time is needed. There are two categories:
- Super quick set up. This is when no preparation is needed. Resources can be taken straight off the shelf or part of the activity is mixing the ingredients.
- Some time required. This may range from a little cutting out, waiting for a period of time for materials to dry to having to wait overnight. Forward planning may also be required.
Each activity is graded on the adult input required. There are two categories:
- Independent activity. Your child does not need adult help to complete the activity.
- Supervision needed. Some level of adult supervision or help is needed in order to complete the activity. This could be because it is a messy activity. The activity could either: be dangerous without supervision, materials could cause damage without supervision or the activity is difficult and would not be completed without adult help.
There is a reason why I have grouped the activities in this way. During my pregnancy with Adam I suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum. I now volunteer for the Pregnancy Sickness Support charity where I administer their Forum for Hyperemesis sufferers. One of the concerns of a women suffering from Hyperemesis a second time is how do you entertain another child whilst you are so ill? The guilt they feel is immense and nine months is such a long time. I wanted a way that women could quickly access play activities which didn’t need any preparation and that the child could play with independently. These activities could also be used for women post pregnancy during feeding time to entertain their older child. Activities are also sorted based on the resources needed and the type of play. These tag clouds can be found on the right hand side bar.
So what next? Adam and I are going to continue doing a daily play activity and will blog about our adventures as and when we can. In order not to miss out why not subscribe to the blog.
