Time For Tots

There will be a series of posts here on Beautiful Girlhood on activities to do with toddlers.  I think most homeschooling families with small children find themselves at a loose end when it comes to toddlers!  They are ever-demanding, and when trying to do your schoolwork, they always find a reason to interrupt...

...Or a perfect place to make a mess!

But we need to work with them, not against them. Finding and actually doing activities with them fills up their little tanks and they are happier tots the whole day leaving you in peace to finish what you are busy doing!!

If anyone has any activities that they are willing to share, please create a post with your ideas on your blog with a link back to my blog. Then leave a comment on this post with a link to your actual blog post so I can have a look and try – I always need ideas!If you would like to share ideas for things to do with toddlers, they must be easy and not overly expensive to make. Recycled things would also be good, but basically anything that little people enjoy doing! (Tried and tested please!)
When I have finished with this series I will give my top five favourite activities with a link to those blogs! So do join in!

I do believe as young girls learning to become Godly wives and mothers one day, we need to learn how to look after toddlers and what a better time to do it when we have small brothers and sisters that ALWAYS need things to do to keep them busy!

So keep those activities coming! I will be posting a new idea for toddler activities once a week here on my blog!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I have been thoroughly enjoying your beautiful blog and ideas for toddlers. I recently did a post about activities I do with my son: http://thedrewpatch.blogspot.com/2011/03/activities-to-do-with-18-month-to-2.html

This post was written before I read your "Time For Tots" posts, but I hope to link to you in future posts on these topics - time permitting! Thanks for your enthusiasm for caring for your siblings.

Hello dearest Heidi-Mari! Thank you so much for doing this Time for Tots activity! It is so cute and your little siblings really looked as if they enjoyed it and yes, Michael is adorable! I can't believe how big he is...it seems like the other day you had a post here announcing the birth of your new baby brother! Again, thanks for taking the time to do this, I really appreciate it! Miss you loads and loads! Love and hugs, Kelly-Anne xxx
