Do you have a sister or brother that is between the ages of 2 and 4?  Then this post is for you!  Here are some ideas to help you connect with your siblings - and this time I'll be sharing with you ideas for playing with the toddler in your family.

Boy Toddlers

-Fill a large plastic bin with white, uncooked rice.  Fill it up only half way, and you can place some bright objects (small ball, crayon, eraser, tiny racecar, etc.) into it.  Your brother can have fun trying to find the different objects, while running his hands through the texture of rice!

-Using Dawn dish soap, fill a small frisbee or flat container with a few generous squeezes of the soap.  Add a little warm water, and combine until bubbly.  Dip a large elastic into the concoction, and have fun blowing bubbles together using the elastics as 'bubble wands'!

-Cut out pieces of colored paper into different shapes (circles, squares, stars, etc.).  Give your brother a gluestick, and let him have fun glueing on the different shapes to a piece of white paper!

Girl Toddlers

-'Bead' Cheerios or Fruit Loops through a piece of yarn with tape on the end (for better threading) to make necklaces together!

-Draw pictures, buy inexpensive frames from IKEA, and hang them around her room! 

-In the wintertime, make Maple Candy together.  On top of fresh snow (only fresh and clean snow!), pour a little dollop of pure maple syrup on top.  Let your sister use a spoon to pick up the frozen maple syrup and eat!  Yum!

REMINDER: THERE IS A BLOG PARTY ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 3RD THAT YOU WILL WANT TO COME TO!  SIMPLY LOG-ON TO THIS BLOG AT 1:30pm FOR FUN AND GAMES, PLUS A CHANCE TO 'MEET' ME!
