    Default Looking for some ideas on activities to do during the day with my 19 month old

    Can anyone tell me what activities & play things they do with their 19 month old during the day. i am trying to organise more things to keep her entertained now she is getting older & needing more mental stimulation.

    Thanks

    Hi wicket :waves:

    I didn't know you have a 19 month old. Me too

    Here's a list of our activities:
    * walk to the park/play on equipment
    *take a ball & bubbles with you
    *ride on cars outside
    *supervised water play (bucket of water, watering can, shovel, floaty boat & duck etc)
    * swimming lessons
    *sand play if you live near the beach
    *non toxic washable painting
    *magic marker set
    *coloring in
    *blocks
    *duplo
    *books
    *toy cars, trains, pram & dolls
    *wooden puzzles
    *hobby horse races
    *my DD loves playing house too. She helps put clothes in the machine. 'chops veggies' in her high hair with a plastic knife. Spray & wipe with water & a clean chucks. 'rides' the vaccine cleaner too.

    We also have letter, number and animal flash cards which she LOVES

    and dress ups

    An activity I used to do with my son, either indoors or outdoors, is to get a bunch of plastic containers, jugs, ice cube trays etc, anything that can be filled and is safe, and fill the jugs and cups with coloured water using food dye. Give him/her a ladle, plastic scoops, spoons etc and let them at it! They love pouring the water from one cup to the next, scooping it up and making "food".. just put them in an art smock and cover the tiles with a towel or plastic table cloth if you have one. Outside is easier on nice days, if you have sand inclused that, they love getting mucky. And you can keep topping up their supply of water and create lots of different colours. It's a simple thing, but they will play for ages

    thank you both so much for all these fantastic ideas.

    Having a 5 month old as well means i havent had as much time lately to come up with new ideas for her.

    I love all of these & am going to copy them into a list i am compiling so i can start to plan activities out.

    I really appreciate the time you have taken to give such great ideas & i am sure my daughter will appreciate it too.

    Both in your local area, currans hill and Harrington park there are ducks ponds my dd loves feeding them.
    We take her little push bike (one she can "peddle" and you push and steer it with a handle and we take her on the track that goes right around Harrington park. There is a park on two sides of it so we stop there too. Then we feed the ducks and there are swans in Harrington park too.

    www.toddlertoddler.com has some great ideas, I just made my self a little folder of them for when I get stuck for something to do. Also places like nick jnr, disney jnr and the ABC 2/4 website have great little activities, crafts and colouring in sheets.

    I have a 19mth old DD, and some things we do are:

    Stickers - she's crazy about these, and will spend a long time sitting down peeling them up and resticking them on things.

    On a similar note - those magnetic sticker things that come in a tin (Mothercare sell them) and you can put them on to different backgrounds.

    Colouring

    She loves the Leap Pad Junior Tag thingy that says things out loud when you read a book with it.

    Playing with her baby doll - she does nappy changes/ puts her to bed in her pram, etc.

    Drawing together - she requests something and I draw it.

    Playing on the deck with her table that fills up with water.

    Chasing each other around the house - makes her giggle lots.

    Giving her an empty tissue box and a pile of coasters to 'post' in there. (I think posting anything would work...)

    Building Duplo towers.

    She likes the Little People play sets - especially ones where cars can go down slides/ rollercoaster paths.

    Singing, and stopping unexpectedly so she has to finish the line.

    Playgroup once a week.

    Rhyme time once a week.

    Going for walks.

    Going to shops and letting her play at the play centres there (at the end of the shopping).
