30+ Activities to do With Toddlers That Don’t Involve Screentime

Hear me out, screen time can be a life saver at times when you have a toddler and you have other stuff that HAS to be done. I’m a big advocate of screen time for my 3 year old because I also have an 8 month old and I just can’t do everything all at once. So when I’m not busy with the baby and can play, here’s some of my favorite things to do. What activities would you add to this list? Let me know in the comments!

  • Blow bubbles
  • Draw with chalk
  • Go for a walk
  • Ride a tricycle
  • Color
  • Play with play dough
  • Read a book
  • Make up a story
  • Go to the library
  • Visit a relative who doesn’t live with you
  • Have a picnic
  • Practice practical skills (i.e. putting on socks and shoes and getting dressed)
  • Play tag
  • Go to the park
  • Plant veggie seeds
  • Dust/ vacuum
