Ways to Keep any Toddler Happy and Amused

Introduction:Toddlers can be quite difficult to control at times. It is much easier to keep them happy and amused rather than to try to keep them under control. Here is a list of the top five ways to keep any toddler happy and amused.

  • 01

    Time

    One of the top five ways to keep any toddler happy and amused is to spend time with them. Toddlers everywhere need lots of loving attention. You can even teach them how to tell time. You can do simple things like give them a chance to let go of a balloon and watch it fly up into the air. This is something very simple which all toddlers really enjoy. There are many places where you can get free balloons, too. Usually supermarkets offer free balloons to children.

    More ideas for spending time with your toddler to keep them happy and amused would be blowing bubbles together, coloring, shopping together, and even just playing with something as simple as a box.

    Talk

    Another of the top five ways to keep any toddler happy and amused is to talk with them. Do not just talk to your toddler. Talk with them. Toddlers really enjoy talking. This always keeps any toddler happy and amused.

    You can help to teach your child to talk by talking with them. You can talk with your toddler about many exciting things like letters, blocks, shapes, and colors. These things always keep any toddler happy and amused.

    Spending time with your child is one of the best gifts that you can give them to help them to learn and grow. Teaching them by talking with them is also an excellent thing to do.

  • 03

    Animals

    There are many ways to keep your toddler happy and amused which, in turn, will keep them from getting into trouble.

    Toddlers love animals. Teach them the names of all the animals along with the various sounds that they make. Your child will get a real kick out of this. Maybe even get a pet or two, unless you already own one.

    Toddlers love to learn about pretty much anything. Teach them how to play certain games on your computer, ipod or ipad.

    Let your toddler draw the different animals on flash cards, and you can both enjoy coloring them together. Be sure to label these flash cards, so you do not forget what animals that each one is. Use these flash cards while playing. Your toddler will be very happy and proud that you enjoy playing with something that they have actually made.

    Another thing that you can do is to find pictures of animals or take pictures of them when you go to the zoo. Print these pictures out for another play time with your child or even to just to let your child play with them.

  • 04

    Music

    One of the top five ways to keep any toddler happy and amused is music. All toddlers love and enjoy music. Make up a silly dance, or teach them a real one.

    Teach your toddler a real song along with a real dance that you can both enjoy together. Do this every once in awhile, and eventually they will have learned many different songs and dances that go along with each other. You may find that your child will begin singing and dancing while they are alone instead of getting into any trouble.

    Play musical chairs together. Your toddler will not mind that there are only two of you.

  • 05

    Jobs

    The last way listed here to keep any toddler happy and amused is to give them jobs to do around the house. Toddlers can have plenty of fun doing various jobs around the house. They want to help you, and they want to have real jobs. Picking up their toys does not count as a real job.

    Let your toddler help you to separate paper plates, let them in on all of your chores. Your toddler can help you to fold the laundry. They can help you to make the bed, and to clean up. They may not be the best at these jobs, but they surely enjoy helping you out.

    I agree 100% on this list of five. It is so important to spend time with your toddler, do a lot of talking and listening, they love music and love to dance. My granddaughter loves animals and giggles when she sees them. She also loves to put her toys in buckets and bowls. Well done list.
