How to keep a 2 year old girl busy

Customer Question

How to keep a 2 year old girl busy

Hello and Thank You for using Just Answer. Is your daughter an only child? Does she attend pre school or daycare? Is she shy or rather active?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes she is the only child. No she stays with her grand parents during the day. She is very active (but not hyper active) and not very shy.
Expert:  proexpert37 replied 3 years ago.

Hello and Thank You for responding. Here are some activities that can keep your daughter busy.

 

1. A play kitchen with lots of fake plastic food and plastic utensils..the kitchen with the fridge, sink, microwave, oven, etc

.

2. Dress up clothes: any dresses and high heels with purses that grandma may already have. Hats would work well too. There are store bought dress up clothes as well. She may be into princess clothes.

 

3. Painting: finger painting on paper or painting on the sidewalk with a paintbrush and water.

 

4. Writing/scribbling with the thick/fat pieces of colored chalk on the sidewalk or on a chalkboard easel.

 

5. Being pulled in a wagon to the park to play in the sand or on tot friendly apparatus.

 

6. Making a "house" out of chairs and blankets inside of the house.

 

7. "Helping" grandma make cookies or cupcakes.

 

8. Enroll your daughter in swim lessons which is sooooooooo necessary. Try to find an inexpensive place for private lessons since she is so young.

 

9. Attend story time at the local library especially in the summer months if available.

 

10. Play with toys by Fischer Price that have the little people and animals with the houses, farms, etc.

 

11. Attend play groups with other children her age. Contact your local community center for more information.

 

12. Leapfrog has many educational electronic games and videos that will get her on the right track in learning the names of the letters, sounds, numbers, and simple words.

 

13. Have her grandparents play kid friendly music in which she has to do motions like "The Hokey Pokey". There are so many money but that is just one example.

 

14. Play kid friendly music while your daughter plays that lists the names of the week and months of the year and counting etc so that she will become familiar with the songs to ready her for pre school and kindergarten.

 

15. Have your daughter visit hands-on kids' museums or any zoos or aquariums in the area.

 

16. Enroll her in tot ballet, tap, or tumbling/gymnastics classes.

 

I hope this gives you some ideas. Have a great day!!!!!Smile
