Toddler Activities: 35 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:

Painting with Water: This is a great activity either indoors on paper or outside on the sidewalk. It is simple and inexpensive and I bet you have all of the supplies on hand! We did painting with water indoors because it was a rainy day, ironically enough. So I just had Emma use a wooden craft stick and construction paper. She had a great time and there was little to no cleanup.

Fireworks Paintings: With Music in Plymouth, Fourth of July, and the Aquatennial, there are a lot of fireworks in our area in July. This is another very simple and inexpensive craft that we did with things we already had on hand. I saved toilet paper tubes and paper towel tubes for a week or so then cut the bottoms and used finger paint and our tubes to stamp firework images all over a few sheets of paper. Emma had a great time and didn't want to stop!
And, of course...

A few of Emma and Bryson's current favorites are:
My 3 good things for today are: 
  1. I just celebrated my sixth anniversary with the best husband ever!

  3. Watermelon. Enough said.
