Raising a toddler with no screen time can sometimes feel overwhelming but this book offers a wide variety of activities to keep the littles occupied for hours on end!!! Really recommend it to all new parents!!!
There are great ideas without needing to buy expensive things. Some activities involve a bit of prep but others you can just sit down and start playing straight away. Not all the activities suit every toddler but it is nice to read about them
I'm just learning about montessori and wanted to use some of the practices with my niece who stays with me every other weekend. I found this book challenging to utilize because I didn't have the materials for many of the activities. I don't have feeling cards or play scarves. I felt like almost every page I turned to involved materials that I didn't have. I think it's probably a good book if you're already into montessori and will have the appropriate materials.
I bought this as my in case of emergency, rainy day, what do we do?! activity book. It arrived damaged in one of those bubble mailers so I requested a return immediately, but I did flip through it and I was unimpressed.
Obviously I'm on Instagram, and the ideas are endless, even if wildly impractical at times. I was just so underwhelmed by this that I didn't re-order it. Maybe 10 or 20 years ago this would make more sense, but I don't think any of the ideas are creative enough, or take that much time.
This is a great "preschool" book for 1-3 year olds. It's not about sitting down and completing a worksheet but rather functional activities that help advance play. I can see my toddler taking these activities and incorporating them into how she plays which is pretty fun. Most of the activities are adaptable to basic materials that most people probably have in their home. They don't take a ton of time and most are not very messy. Highly recommend.
