We all have those days when we want to do something fun with the kids, but WHAT?
I used to get completely stuck for ideas and would find myself searching the internet for “fun things to do with a toddler” for over an hour before I found any good and creative ideas of what we could do.
So, to make your life a little bit easier, I have compiled a list of my Top 40 fun things that I like to do with my toddler or that my friends like to do with theirs.
Some of these ideas also have a helpful link with them to help you out even more. For more info on affiliate links, see the Disclosure.
