Each day, I try to incorporate some learning activities into Walker's day. Of course, we go out and do fun outings (the zoo, a local play place or museum, or just playing in the water table at a friend's house), simply play outside or race Matchbox cars around the house, but I try to keep a bevy of educational activities around for him that are fun -- and many he doesn't even realize he's learning from!
One of my favorite quotes that I'd use often in my former job doing communications/PR for a local public school district was one from Mr. Rogers himself: "Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood."
So that's what I like to keep in mind when I structure our days: playing and learning go hand-in-hand. With that said, here are some of my favorite toddler learning activities (and Walker's, too!):
Like I said, we of course do a ton of play, which is absolutely educational in and of itself! These activities are definitely not just for those kiddos and mamas who are at home, either! These are great learning tools for every mama and her little one(s) to learn from, play with and bond over. :)
What are some of y'all's favorite learning activities for your little one(s)?
