Toddlers and preschoolers need plenty of time to just run around and play – adventure playgrounds, parks and the beach are all great places for kids this age. If you don't have access to a safe outdoor space, perhaps look into local soft play areas. I know that some of our local ones offer discounts to children who attend during school hours and also advocate special rates to encourage parents to bring their child for their daily 60 active minutes.
Activities for children 2-5 years
There are many other things that you can do with your toddler. Try to remember that they love to move and the activities you choose to do should reflect this.
I am a preschool and primary school teacher and mum to 3 children. I have been involved in education since 1997 and have trained in a variety of educational specialist areas. It is with this expertise that I write articles to help parents and educators provide quality learning experiences for the children in their care.
