    Thank you, thank you for these ideas!! I have a 14mo old and have been putting together activities for him, but find most out there are for older kids. Much appreciated!!

    I love this post. Mine is actually over two. He’ll be 2 1/2 in a few days but I still think he’ll love a bunch of these activities. Since it’s summer and I also have a 4 year old to entertain, it’s sometimes nice to have something to fall back on that is just “easy” and “low pressure”. Thanks!

    Wow! I love these ideas! I love the bubble wrap starfish. I never would have thought to do that with bubble wrap and am so excited to try it with my children. With a 15 mo old and 3 year old I find myself doing most projects with my 3 year old while the 15 mo old naps. It is great to have ideas on how to get him involved.

    Love this list! What kind of paint do you use? My 14 mo old son still loves to put everything in this mouth so I rarely break out the crayons or paint for fear of it being harmful. Suggestions?? Thanks!
