A Very Toddler Summer

Summer is one of my favorite times to relax and just have fun with my kids when we don't have crazy schedules and school getting in the way.

This summer I am excited to be partnering with my friend Jenae at I Can Teach My Child to share a two week blog series called A Very Toddler Summer!

Our A Very Toddler Summer series will feature 10 days of awesome and simple activities for toddlers. Some will be old favorites and some will be "new to us" activities that we haven't done with our toddlers before. All activities will be fun!

My toddler is 2.5 years old and Jenae's toddler is a little over 1 years old. I will be posting activities on Mondays and Wednesdays especially for 2-3 year olds and Jenae will be posting activities on Tuesdays and Thursdays especially for 1-2 year olds. Many of them can work with both ages, but we'll share additional modifications as needed.

We would love for you to join in and do some of the activities along with us! You can let us know in the comments if you plan to participate.

We'll be sharing activities on both of our blogs (Toddler Approved- HERE and I Can Teach My Child) and you can also follow along over on Instagram. I'm @kristinatoddlerapproved and Jenae is @jenaeteach
