Activities for 18 month old and younger

35 activities for 18 month old and younger

It seems the end of an era and mark to the occasion here are 35 activities for 18 month old and under – T is now almost 19 months old (well tomorrow she will be) so as we move from Baby activities to full blown toddler Activities.

These are 35 activities for 18 month old and under (well from around 6 months to 18 months) that we have done with T over the last year, they are easy to set up and in the most part are free and where there is a cost that is very little. There are Art Activities, Exploring, Imaginative Play, Sensory and activities for fine and gross motor skills.

      16a14935142You actually make it seem so easy with your patosneetirn but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it! 187

    I’m pinning this! What a great reference of projects; perfect to have on hand for our current teething nights/sleep-deprived Mama days (wink).

    I just want to thank you for these ideas. I nanny a child and have been at a loss with what to do with her. Your ideas have given me a base to which I know what basic things to buy so I can then be creative with her and let her fully explore things not readily available.

    My son is now 18 months and has always been very inquisitive. I’ve wanted to do messy play with him for awhile now but like any mum I’ve been afraid he’d eat paints etc since everything goes straight to the mouth! Thank you very much for sharing these fantastic ideas and recipes, tomorrow we will be painting the kitchen! With these recipes we’re both happy! Thank you again!
