DIY Games for Toddlers
Keeping toddlers engaged and entertained can require a bit of creativity in the best circumstances. You may think that shopping for toys will help, but often, simple activities can be the best way to spend time with your little ones. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to keep your little one happy by providing DIY games you can create from items around the house. This write-up will look at some creative DIY activities for toddlers to help them play and have fun at home. Sticky Spiderweb is a great game idea to help kids develop hand-eye coordination while having fun. All you need is a roll of tape, paper towels, newspaper or something to scrunch up into a ball (probably a sock), and a door. Start crossing the tape at the top or center of the door, and ensure the sticky side is facing you. Then encourage your child to try throwing the scrunched-up balls at the web.
A homemade jigsaw puzzle is another DIY game for toddlers to play to have fun. You can print pictures from magazines or your old birthday cards to do this. Cut them into different shapes, sizes, and angles, then encourage your kids to put them back together. Your kids can cut them, too, and ask you to have a go. This game serves as a mental exercise for the kids as well as improves your kid’s memory.
Paper Towel Roll and Pom-Pom challenge is a great way to help your child become one of the future engineers and mathematicians. It is also great for fine motor skills, balance, and coordination. To make this game, you will need cardboard tubes cut into smaller pieces of different sizes. Then glue them to a plate or box cover with enough space to roll a small round object. The goal is to roll the balls through the tubes. To make the game more challenging, number the tubes and pass the ball between them in numerical order.
