Hello I'm Dr. Deborah Wheeler. I'm a Clinical Psychologist and the Vice President of Academic Affairs at the Salt Lake City campus for Argosy University. My topic today is fun things to do with toddlers. Toddlers love to play follow the lead. You could play follow the leader with them. You can have them imitate the things you are doing. They love to follow behind adults and act just like a grownup. Play follow the leader around the house, or in the back yard, or if you are out and just need to distract them follow the leader is a very good activity for them. You might also try crafts that they can eat. You could boil a big pot of spaghetti or macaroni and just let them, once it cools, let them play with that. They might make a craft with it. They can glue it on and of course they will want to eat a little bit. There are some great recipes out there for other crafts they can make and eat like Play Dough that they can make out of sugar cookie dough or other kinds of edible materials. So go ahead and find some recipes that they can both play with and eat. They will love that. Children at that age are easily entertained with some of the most simple basic activities so find simple things around the house. They don't need to be complex. Just have fun with your child. That is the most important thing. Another fun activity with toddlers are bubbles. They love bubbles. You can buy the big bottles and you might want to even invest in a bubble gun. That makes it easier on the person who doesn't have to blow the bubbles. You can simply shoot them in the air and the toddlers will have a great time chasing after them. Those are some of the fun tips. If you need more information on parenting tips be sure to contact us at
