Having a toddler in your home is pretty much like being on your toes from morning till evening and getting crazily busy with your little baby’s cute demands every now and then.
Keeping a toddler distracted through the day is an art that each one of us learns on this wonderful yet demanding journey of parenthood.
The best way to keep these little wonders busy is by keeping them entertained by introducing new games every now and then.
“New challenges, new hurdles, new rewards, new relationships look challenging in the beginning.”
Parenting a kid is very demanding and difficult these days, more so, if you are in a nuclear set up.
In this post, you will come across certain engaging games that your little wonder will surely love.
5 stimulating games for a 2 year old
Here, is a list of new games to help your child enjoy while being in your company:
1. Hide and Seek:
One of the all-time favourites of all toddlers, this game tops the list.
You can play this as many times in a day as you want and for as long as you wish to play it.
You would see the excitement and happiness on your child’s face while you play this game. They love the idea of hiding around and being found by you all the time.
2. Arts and Crafts:
Drawing, colouring, making purses, balls, butterflies out of papers is something all kids love to do. Kids are a lot more creative than we as adults are.
You can use your imaginations and can bring in as much creativity as you wish to this arts and crafts activity for your kid.
You could also log onto You tube and watch tutorials to learn to make anything that your child wishes to.
Kids love this game!
You can keep some soft toys and treat them as school kids and see how you little baby enjoys being a teacher to them.
You may also consider making a small slate and few chalk pieces available to help your child scribble on it as a part of her role as a teacher.
4. Clay and moulds:
Another creative activity to help your child stay distracted by being involved in something productive.
Clay and moulds are a lot of fun and you could go on improvising it by making cakes, balls, houses, caterpillars, etc. from it.
Then you can take this game to another level by becoming a baker who is selling cakes and pastries and stuff like that.
5. A battle verses a tea party:
You may consider arranging a battle on a battle ground with spider man, iron man, He man etc. You may provide some toy cars to commute to the battle ground.
You may use building blocks or any other similar toys to create structures on the battle ground, so on and so forth. This will surely amuse your little baby.
You may choose to organise teddy tea parties where you arrange a small toy kitchen set and allow your baby to make some nice snacks and tea for toys.
These are some really interesting and engaging set of games which your little toddler will surely enjoy playing. The more you participate in these games the more they explore and enjoy playing it. A small tip for you here is to hire a help for just two to three hours a day who could just come and play with your little baby in your presence. This comes as a big rescue to you and entertains the child as they need new people around to interact with every now and then.
