One easy and fun activity my kids love is taking their “pets” out for a walk. In our case, that means bringing stuffed animals outside and it’s a great way to get them out the door. The world outside, especially in our forest, is a huge playground for their tiny animals. Sometimes they want a leash put on a toy dog or treats to bring, but all can easily be improvised.
This activity will get toddlers talking to themselves, helping them improve their communication skills. It also encourages creativity and independent play, which will help your job as a parent because the more your kids can play alone, the more time you’ll have to do chores or relax.
