How do you occupy a toddler and keep them engaged

First of all please understand, toddlers have an attention span of max 2 to 3 minutes. So all the posts, ads and videos you have seen of toddler playing happily and independently for a longer period of time are only partially true.  

 

Please set your expectations accordingly. 

 

Having said that books, toys, activities and crafts can help you keep your child engaged for short span of times.


Learning activities and packs for toddlers

What do you do with toddlers

We all agree to the fact that each child is different and has his own pace of development. So below is a general guidance that you can adapt for your child.

 

To understand how to plan activities for our toddler – first begin with understanding early learning terms like fine motor skills, gross motor skills and what are the main areas of child development in our article – What is child development 

 

Also at this age, do not expect your child to be actually doing planned activities. 

 

Set up activities such that your child can explore – give them a chance and exposure but not with any set expectations. Also focus on skills rather than academics. 

 

If you are in India you can get this activity book for toddlers. This same activities are available in reusable format. These are big size so perfect for kids as young as 2 year olds. You can check it here (We are sure you would love it)
