60 Activities to do with Toddlers

I'm always in search of new and exciting things to do with little ones. Every time we do something we have never done before, it brings so much happiness to my heart. As though I am one big kid all over again. Except better. Because you get to watch this joy and excitement in a child's eyes. You get to watch them explore and discover the world. And there is truly something magical about a child learning and trying new things.

So I have compiled a list. A short list. Of some fun things that we have done and some things that we still plan to do. I'm sure there are 200+ more to write down, but these are just some of our favorite things.
