Doodling - A to Z of Toddler Activities - Baby & Beyond

Whenever I am at a complete loss as to how to keep N occupied, doodling is one thing that never fails! I simply hand him a pen and paper, or doodle board.

He keeps himself occupied with his doodling while I continue my own work, encouraging him occasionally by saying yes, those squiggles do look like an elephant or car or whatever it is he says he is drawing :))

Yes I call is “doodling”, not “scribbling” because it is an art form for them. It is a way to express their creativity and also forms a base for writing which they will learn a few years later.

Skills Developed: Hand-eye co-ordination, fine motor skills, creativity, pre-writing

If you are a parent of a toddler, you know that one of the most frequent questions we have almost on a daily basis is how to keep our toddlers engaged, or what sort of learning games activities can be planned for our kids.

This post is part of a series I am doing on A to Z of toddler activities in 100 words each. Most of these require little to no pre-planning, but wherever any resources are required, I’ll guide you on where you can find those as well.

You can find the complete list of activities here.
