I buy my son a lot of toys and activities but being a crafter, I also like making some for him at home when I have the time. Here are some cheap activities that I made for him back when he was 11-12 months old.
This is a variation of this activity. Actually, this is the first one that we did. He started doing this when he was 7 months old. I just bought a pack of cheap Pick-Up-Sticks from the bookstore. I got an old formula container and punched holes on the lid. He loved this activity. He would do it every day. This is a great fine motor skills activity.
My son loves lift-the-flap books so I decided to make him a simple one about elephants. During that time, our lesson was the letter E. My son also likes elephants so this was a perfect topic.
I just printed some photos on cardstock then got another one and made “windows”. I glued them together and voila!
This next activity is a no-brainer. I didn’t make this. I got some cheap cartolina and finger paint and gave them to the little one.
What are your cheap activities for your toddler? I’d love to hear them! Share them in the comments below.
