101 Independent Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers
“When I had my first two year old I was often at a loss for what to do to keep her mentally engaged and out of mischief… I would have loved to have had something so simple as 101 Independent Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers.” – Kathy from Cornerstone Confessions
Why Independent Play?
Although I strongly believe parents should play with their children, there are plenty of times when it is appropriate for children to play on their own. Often you are busy with something that your children cannot help you with and you need a way to occupy them.
This eBook provides a supply of ideas for things that your child can do independently.
“MaryEllen from Imperfect Homemaker has done an outstanding job gathering a list of ideas, all in one place, for those of us scrambling for ideas to free up our time once in a while. ” -Sisters Raising Sisters
All of these activities have been tested by real moms and kids.
Some will be appropriate for very young children, and some act will be better for preschool children. You will need to determine what will work for your child. Also, you may be surprised at which activities your child likes best. Just try them and find what works best for your family!
Most of these ideas require minimal cost and setup.
The book is divided into several sections, including:
- Arts and Crafts
- Chores (yes chores! Preschoolers love cleaning!)
- Educational activities
- Sensory activities
- Literacy activities
- Imaginative Play
“I highly recommend this book for parents of Toddlers and Preschoolers!! Whether you have older children or not, this will help get younger children accustomed to playing with each other or by themselves while giving them time to stretch and use their imaginations as you complete housework at a record pace!” -Annette from In All You Do
