20 At-Home Activities That Will Keep Your Toddler Entertained
Build a bridge
This STEM activity really engages a child’s brain and kinesthetic abilities. Give them paper, Popsicle sticks or chopsticks, and some tape. Have them build a bridge. Better yet, build your own bridge and see which one can balance a doll, a ball, or an egg. A child’s brain often thinks quite differently than an adult’s with fewer limitations on what they believe is possible. Not only can you teach them about concepts such as weight and gravity during a project like this, but you may learn a thing or two yourself watching your child problem solve. If you really want to keep their creations, consider using playdoh or another medium that will harden.
