40+ Best Activities for One Year Olds
Inside: The Best Activities for One-Year-Olds. Reggio Inspired, Loose Parts, Fine Motor and Baby Play.
Have a one-year-old? Me too!
Today I want to give you the best ideas for your one-year-old. And if you have children of multiple ages, be sure to check out our Startup Guide to Breakfast Invitations. These keep the peace and allow me to wake up!
I also want to share with you some ways that you may not have learned about...yet.
Reggio Inspired Play is a way for your one-year-old (and older) to explore their environment and use Loose Parts to increase creativity.
Not sure where to start? Below is an Amazon Affiliate link to the book that helped me better understand WHY this style of learning is so important for young learners.
A Crafty Living has put together her "What Should my Child be Learning?" Post. This is another great resource for you to keep on hand.
