View Full Version : Resources and activities for 1 year okd non walker

12-03-2013, 06:54 PM
I have (hopefully) got a 1yr old non walker starting soon. At present I have 2 18month old walkers so I just wondered what resources everyone would use for the 1yr old. He loves anything with wheels apparently so I have lots of cars and a buggy but just wondered how to extend the play? It's a loooong time since mine were 1, and I have been working with children 2 years up so I am having a mental blank!

How about some painting but use a toy car rolled through paint and onto paper to make marks instead of using a paint brush

My mindee loves cars, brio trains. Elc bus. Pegs, cupboards, plastic bowls, treasure basket, painting and anything that makes a mess. He's a real tipper so I nly put out a few baskets at a time.

I have 2 crawlers aged 1 and they love:

Musical instruments
Stacking boxes
Postbox (ELC) - in fact this is a favourite all ages
Treasure baskets
Balls (sit them with them in a laundry basket or box)
Push along toys
