When we have more than one child, doing activities that involve more than coloring or play dough can seem like a daunting task. How do we manage two kids when there’s only one of us? How can they both possibly do an activity at the same time and get something out of it?
And, let’s be honest. Sometimes it’s not possible to do an activity with both kids at the same time. If your younger child still naps, doing an activity with your older child during nap time is another idea. Letting Baby watch from a bouncer, swing or from a high chair while trying out a snack are other ideas.
Give yourself and your children grace and understanding and keep moving forward. Keep trying and you’ll find your groove. Use this FREE Activity Checklist to help make setting up activities easier. You might also like this post, which is packed full of information about toddler routines.
