My first post on 15 Independent Activities for One-Year-Olds has been the most popular post on Imperfect Homemaker. I figure there must be lots of other moms who are in the same boat that I am and need something that will occupy their little ones for a while! I decided to round up some more ideas for all of us that are age-appropriate for one-year-olds and can be done independently by the child.
Note: If you click a picture or the link under the pictures, you will be taken to the blog where these ideas originated from. If you’d like to pin a specific picture, please pin from the blog where the idea was originally posted.
Pssst…before you read on…I want to let you in on a healthy living sale that’s going on this week only. Get help with your specific health needs or just learn the basics of a healthy lifestyle. There are 86 ebooks, a health mentorship program (something I’ve always wanted to do, but is cost prohibitive for sure), and $158 in free products! The cost is $29.97 – um…that’s pretty much a no-brainer to me! Get all the details here.
9. Pom poms and cardboard tubes (if this activity is going to be unsupervised, I think it would be best to replicate this idea with larger sized balls that won’t fit into the child’s mouth.)
15. Toys! There are lots of toys that you can buy that are educational, and you don’t have to take the time to make anything. Here’s my list of 10 toys for one-year olds.
What activities do you use for your little ones when you need them to play by themselves?
