Toddlers spent most of their day playing that’s why I try my best as a parent to always live by the learning through play theory.
My son just turned 2 and he’s now more active, curious and fearless to try everything. He would run, crawl, jump and do many things that makes this mommy nervous. I am the lenient type pa ha. Simple scratches and bumps I can let go. But if its bleeding, then I am panicky!
That’s why sensory plays though messy is my favorite toddler activity. It’s more controlled yet open-ended and keeps him “contained” yet busy while learning leaps and bounds.
Sounds great, right?
Toddler Activities. Ways to entertain a toddler. How to keep my toddler busy? These are my recent searches and I am still on the look out for more. But can I be honest and real as a mom and say that almost 60% of what’s out there can only interest my toddler for a very limited time, to be frank 10 minutes max and then we need to introduce a new one as he’d lost interest already.
Toddlers are comparable to gadgets in the sense that sleeping is equal to charging and when they sleep for long good hours they woke up fully charged 100% energized to their full potential. That’s why I always research on activities that he can do when he’s up.
From our past trips on the beach and indoor playgrounds I observed that Seb enjoys playing with sand. It keeps him occupied for a very long time just scooping… and so my wish of having one of those sand boxes in our home is realized but space and maintenance is an issue and so I dropped the idea and settled into those occassional visits.
But then comes the solution (thank you, Pinterest) and its oh so easy to DIY that I did it a few hours after reading the pinned post. Let me share with you the process, experience and outcome of Sensory play using Moon Sand.
