Throughout the quarantine so far, I’ve kept a running list of the toys and crafts that have kept Naiya happy and entertained (and me sane!). Most days, I’m literally not sure what I’d do without them. Sharing our top 20 picks out of everything we’ve tried so far. It’s our hope that your toddlers will love them too (and that you’ll get at least five extra minutes of “me” time while they’re busy playing)! All of the product images below are clickable and I’m linking to everything at the bottom of this post too. Hope you’re all safe, healthy and hanging in there!
Our Favorite Toddler Activities Right Now
If you’ve been following along with us on IG, I bet you’ll recognize a lot of the products we’re sharing with you today. We’ve been using many of them around the clock to keep our uber-busy toddler, Naiya, entertained. I scored almost all of these goodies off of Amazon Prime and Naiya has been obsessed.
Out of everything listed above, Naiya’s especially loving water beads, a sensory toy that’s also fun for mamas and the whole fam. You scoop tiny beads into water, let them sit and a few hours later, they grow into soft gel balls. Your kids will spend hours scooping them in and out of cups or you can add them to a baby pool outside so they can swim around with them. A scoop of them goes a long way and eventually, they shrink back down and are reusable!
Crafts We’re Loving
Naiya’s also been living for crafts recently. She spent hours making cupcake wrapper art with this kit. She’s also made me a bunch of new bracelets out of this set here. She’s been loving this slime-making kit and this popsicle play-doh set, as well as this flower garden set.
