10 Simple 2-Minute Toddler Activities

If you haven’t noticed we have really been on a Toddler kick around here lately. Partly because we were busy getting Project Sensory ready for launch and had some amazing guests visit us. Mainly though, its because we have a full blown toddler on our hands and we are always looking for new and simple ways to play with our toddler. Today I am super excited to share some simple 2-Minute toddler activities that we use to keep our little bit busy when I just need 2 minutes of hands-free time.

Dinner, folding laundry, going to the bathroom… you name it and its a chore with a toddler on your hands. Super B (17months) gets into absolutely everything. She loves to climb and open drawers, so we have to be on our toes all the time.

These activities are simple. No fuss. No mess. Simple.

You will even find that some of the photos aren’t “the best” quality because they are taken on the fly with my phone. You see, if you have a toddler, you know that a 2 minute activity not only describes how long it takes to set it up… but also how long your toddler will be entertained. Toddlers are not known for a long attention span, meaning having quick and easy activities at your fingertips is imperative.
