26 Days of Toddler Learning Fun – Part I

Toddler learningWhether you are a stay at home mom, nanny, or working mom it can be hard to come up with new ideas everyday to keep that tiny busy mind and body learning and having fun. Here are the first 5 days to “26 Days of Toddler Learning and Fun”. The age range of these activities could go from age 1 -5 easily. You can mold it to fit your child, it is simply an outline and inspiration. I would suggest setting aside time before the week begins to prepare for each day. Maybe a trip to the library on Monday to get all the books you will be reading that week. (or you can use nap time to prepare for the following days activities)
