Guys, I love my quiet time!
With my toddler, I try to find a balance between more vigorous activities and individually focused ones. In the morning we like to go out with the bike, play with the ball, playgroups, and we tend to slow down when lunch time comes.
We have this routine where we would go upstairs in my toddler’s room and try some crafts that I can start with him, and he can carry out by himself while I do a quick tidying up.
This shape sorting quite time activity is ideal to wind down your little one before bedtime and excellent for fine motor and scissor skills development.
Muffin tins make great sorting trays. I grabbed a couple of scrap coloured paper that we already had around from previous crafts and let my child cut the paper in different sizes. To make the game a bit more complicated, I threw in a couple of patterns like zebra, giraffe, and tiger.
It was so pleasing to see his enthusiasm. He enjoyed this activity and was getting quite serious and focused; you could see that he was really trying to work it out. So cute!
