Toddler Activity Kit to the Rescue

I am long past having a toddler in my house, but some of those memories do not fade.  The need to keep those little hands busy, even for 3 minutes is worth any effort.  I put together this toddler activity kit as a 2nd birthday gift for my very busy nephew.  To my surprise it was such a big hit, his big sister wanted her own version.

A combination of colorful (and a little educational) activities in a binder for easy portability made this kit easy to put together.  Just keep your eye out for easy to clean and durable crafts made of different textures.  I used a combination of simple crafts and store bought items.  No need to make it all!  So grab a zippered binder, a couple of 3-hole punched storage pouches and get to work.

Toddler Activity Kit items

  • Lace cards (you can make with shoelaces and a hole punch, but I was able to find one to buy inexpensively)
  • Clothes pins
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Button snake**
  • Laminated coloring pages with big washable crayons.  I have had a lot of luck with this laminator.  Be sure to watch for sales.  I got this one for $10 on a Black Friday!
  • ABC Road Trip book with a small car for tracing letters.  Playdough to Plato blog has a great set of step-by-step instructions.
  • Flashcards
  • Wood stir sticks with Velcro on the ends.  I used wooden fan sticks, but as long as the Velcro can fit on the ends for building any craft stick could do.
  • Window clings
  • Felt frog with zipper mouth**
