13 Things to Do With Your Toddler

We stumbled upon this great list on Wani's World. Here are the first five:

1. Read a book - it's so important to start instilling a love of books early on in their lives. Find books you remember from when you were a kid, or find new ones to fall in love with together.

2. Take a walk - get outside and enjoy nature and explore it through the eyes of your child.

3. Snack - don't use food as a babysitter (at least not all the time) - sit down together and use that time to talk together about your day.

4. Draw on your sidewalk w/ chalk - kids love it and its fun to have such a huge canvas.

5. Make up a story - my three-year-old has really gotten into this lately - one of us will start a story and the other will help with key parts - its so neat to hear what he comes up with.

slide together! ;) I love when there are no other children at the playground b/c I can play on the equipment with my daughter. We especially love the side by side slides and the twisty slides. ;)
