Fun Simple DO-ABLE Activities for 18 to 24 Month Old Toddlers

Share on Pinterest

My little girl turned 2 a few weeks ago! As I did with her year and half day where I shared her favorite things to do at 18 months old, today I want to share with you what she has been up to since 18 months to the grand 24 months old, erm 2 years old.

Activities for 18 to 24 Months what my toddler loves from PowerfulMothering.com

Toddler Toys

Plastic animals are still staple as well as a pretend tea set and (her brothers) Lego.

She loves puzzles! The Melissa & Doug Farm Sound Blocks are currently getting a lot of use. I also made a lovely list of puzzles for under 3 year olds here.

Toddler Books

We still have the same range of books as I listed in books for under 3 year olds, I really should order some new ones soon!

Homemade Activities

waterplay and paintingA large part of activities for my toddler have been the DIY activities and crafts I come up with and share on the blog.

In January we did an entire month of simple play were she enjoyed various activities such as, water play with a whisk, Ice trains and painting on a chalk board (this one is still enjoyed!).

She was very eager to help make a flower gift with me too. A great helper!

 

Sensory Play

Playdough toolsThis year we started on our journey of exploring 12 sensory doughs and making them taste safe for the little ones.

The most loved activity is play dough and cloud dough. I think she really enjoyed our loose parts play with play dough as well!

She also loves rice play and all 3 kids were more than happy to help me “play together” my new ebook RICE PLAY!

There was plenty of rice play to go around from a free standing bin to frogs and fishing for fish.

We also explored a shaving cream free sensory rainbow!

Art

We didn’t do much art in the last few months but when we did she got right into it!

Take a look at these rather cute butterflies as well as our bubble wrap art works.

Fine Motor Activities

My 2 year old is VERY interested in our fine motor adventures

At 18 months she started with a supervised Spice Bottle and Toothpicks activity and at 19 months she joined in on her first pasting activity to make a little heart craft.

From then on she was the star of our fine motor activities every Friday!

She fed baby birds worms (pretend ones!), stuck velcro sticks together, played with a fine motor counting hedgehog, fed a very hungry monster, explored a use for tiny tiny pom poms and reused an empty box.

A real quick think on the feet activity saved us from a toddler melt down.

Another first was learning to color and shapes match which we did with a DIY shape sorter as well as some rather clever lids.

At almost 2 she is able to do many fine motor activities our recent adventures include crazy straws, sensory sticks, window shapes and ice play!

You are able to see all our fine motor activities here in my archives.

I also share my tips for keeping your younger toddler busy in the kitchen while you make dinner!

After gathering a great resource for printables for her I put together a list of what I had printed.

But my personal favorite for my now 2 year old is the no sew quiet book I made her!
