    At the moment, DS2 loves water play, balloons (I blow a few up and he chases them around) and dancing to music.

    He also loves inspecting new objects, so we play a lot of sensory games. I.e.: I fill a little basket with different objects and materials (scarves, a new scourer, empty bottle, metal whisk, face washer, just random household/garden objects) and let him pull them all out one by one and explore. Likewise, he loves exploring the garden. I take him outside and we look at stones, leaves, bark, the grass and I explain them to him and let him touch them and play with them. We also go 'bird watching', he loves looking at the birds flitting about.

    He also loves our music box, especially the tambourine and maracas. I also filled an empty container with pasta and another with dry rice and he loves shaking them and listening to the noise.

    He's starting to take a big interest in the bead maze, nesting cups and rolling balls around on the floor. Oh and he still really loves playing peekaboo

    I you have an empty tissue box or those huggies wipes containers, fill it with different textured material and they can pull it out again. We did that for dd and she loves it! I gave her some stickers to decorate the box with so that was
    an activity in itself. She loves pulling out all the different material and then of course putting it back in!
    And of course she is obsessed with bubbles at the moment.

    I enjoyed taking dd for walks at that age she could look around in the pram. Have a few swings on the baby swing. Look at the beach. Feel the sand in her feet. Maybe even walk along with me for abit. If I was lucky she'd fall asleep on the way home otherwise just lots of singing, talking and playing with toys.

    We try to do something physically active in the morning and later in the afternoon (It may be playing in the backyard or going for a walk and having a play at the playground) to wear her out. We did do swimming lessons in the warmer months but now we are planning on doing Toddler Gym at the local leisure centre because she loves climbing and running and meeting other people.

    We also do Rhyme Time at our local library.
