Pipe Cleaner & Whisk
Pipe Cleaner & Whisk

Have ever tried to use kitchen utensils for creating activities? If not yet, you can start with a whisk for your baby/new toddler. You can tie pipe cleaners simply on a whisk and ask your kid to rescue them. It is great for developing many skills. It can help your baby to be able stay in sitting position longer time. Great for crawling times, too. You can put it a little bit far and ask your baby to catch it.

It helps to develop tiny hand muscles and imagination. You can build your own building. All you need is an empty box and some straws. That’s all. ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿจ๐Ÿก๐Ÿข๐Ÿ Cut the straws to the size you want, make small cuts in the middle, then insert the cardboards in the straws. It would be better if you use thin cardboard.

MB loves spending time in the kitchen. He prepares pasta, muffins and smoothie himself. When I ask his dream job, he directly says “Cook”. And he wants to be a cook, because he wants to cook for all homeless kids. This answer is melting my heart. This activity is great for boosting self-confidence, too. We named the place “MB’s Food Corner”, we were customers and MB was the chef. We ordered and he cooked, served for us. When you look into the setup, I am sure that you will see many skills in it, even more than I wrote below.

Paper Matching

I prepared this for my 2 years old son. If you are too busy but still want to prepare an activity for your toddler, then this activity is great for you. Just cut the paper in half in different shapes. All you need is paper. If you don’t have scissors you can try to cut it by hand. And even you can replace the paper with newspaper or magazine.

Handmade gifts are very special, aren’t they? The best part I love is fostering creativity while crafting with the kids. They choose the colors, patterns for their own crafts. I should admit that I also enjoy crafting a lot, especially when the final product becomes a beautiful decoration in our home.

Paper Roll Beads

Small beads are very dangerous for under 2 year old kids, but these paper roll beads are not. If you want to prepare a fine motor activity for your 2 years old, this is great idea then. It is not only stringing but also sorting activity. Just cut the paper rolls into 3 pieces and use washi tapes to diversify them.

Garlic press, potato masher, whisk, ice-cream scoop, wavy shape potato slicer. I am sure that you can find more options in your own kitchen. But I can say that “Garlic Press” was my favorite one. MB loved wavy shape slicer.
