Toddler Activities: 32 Months Old

One of the challenges of being a stay at home mom is finding activities for your little one to keep them  engaged, entertained, and learning throughout the day. These are a few of our current favorite activities:

Potato Stamping: Potato stamping has been around forever! Simply carve the design into the potato, dip in paint and stamp. 

It's especially easy to do an Easter egg stamp because the potatoes' natural shape lends itself perfectly to an egg shape.

Coloring Eggs with Crayons: Use crayons to color on hard-boiled eggs while they’re still hot (but not too hot) from the pan; the wax will melt and adhere artfully and easily onto the shells. This was very simple for Emma to do and the eggs turned out really fun!

And, of course...

Read: Reading is one of the best activities you can do with your child at any age!

A few of Emma and Bryson's current favorites are:

Most of our books this month were about Easter. We had a blessed Easter and did a number of fun activities with the kids. 

On the Saturday before Easter, we went to a community egg hunt, and then afterwards visited a pet store where we got to see some baby Easter bunnies and baby chicks

Emma and Bryson both opened their Easter baskets on Sunday morning before church service. Their baskets included treats like apple sauce packets, chalk, bubbles, and pails and shovels for playing in the sand! 

They even got bunny shaped pancakes for breakfast!  

My 3 good things for today are:
  1. We serve a risen Savior!
  2. Bryson is walking!
  3. We have no more snow in our yard, and even some green grass!
