Review by erin the great



It's 10:06 in the morning. You’ve showered (maybe), ate breakfast (or watched the rascal throw it on the floor), guzzled 2 cups of coffee while you read stories, walked to the park and back, stacked and knocked down towers, had a dance party, played hide and seek and the rascal is STILL waiting for the next activity. You are out of ideas. Now what?


Just pull out your handy The Everything Toddler Activities Book by Joni Levine, M.Ed., browse through the category that fits your toddler’s mood best and pick the perfect, easy activity. Sometimes I'll even find an activity during naptime so that I will have a little extra preparation time.


Close to dad’s birthday? Check out the Arts and Exploration chapter for home made presents. Rainy day? There’s a chapter for that. Is your toddler totally into make believe lately? Or exploring outside? All covered. And, like a cook book there is a quick guide giving you materials, duration of activity and best age range (18-40 months or 30-40 months).


When the rascal gets restless, pick up the book. One of the games from the book, “Dump it out!” is so easy, just take a group of objects to fill a large container with. I used blocks and a kitchen mixing bowl. Toddlers enjoy filling up the bowl. Show them how to dump out the objects and repeat. The rascal got such a grinchy grin on his little face when I chanted “Dump it out! Dump it out!” He would yell out in joy while tipping the bowl over. He giggled and giggled and crawled around and around to fill the bowl up again. So simple. Yet, so genius.


Thank you, Dr. Levine!
