Favorite Activities

Ok, we’re busy being parents and don’t need to spend countless hours on this blog looking for ideas.  In an effort to help simplify, here are J’s favorite activities.   I am your average mom that wants to entertain and engage my son BUT still needs time to clean the house, do the laundry, run errands, work (ok, just a little), and relax!! I promise these are activities that ANYONE CAN IMPLEMENT.  

These activities got (or still get) lots of mileage.   They are fairly easy to implement and easy to clean. They entertain for a realistic period of time (according to age group). They are cheap and they encourage development.

Notice the repeats for the different age groups. These activities would be the ones to definitely try out for yourselves!

  1. What a great list! Found your link on babycenter. This is so helpful. Always looking for things to do with my 14mo twins.
