Somehow Ryder has turned into a little man. It’s like he went from a newborn baby to a toddler overnight. I blinked. Now he’s a walking and talking toddler. He has his own thoughts and ideas and loves to let you know them.
Has this happened to anyone else? Your baby has gone from an ittle squish to a chattering toddler?
I know it has. It happens to us all. Even if it’s your first child or third. They just keep growing, no matter how hard we will them to stay little.
Although I complain about my babies growing to fast I still enjoy each new stage. Going from the squirmy newborn to the rolly polly baby to the tottling toddler. Every stage brings new joys and milestones.
Some of my favorite milestones are when they find their hands, when they are almost crawling but can’t quite figure it out yet and when they learn how to play independently. It may seem backwards that I cringe when I think about my babies growing up but I also love to watch them play by themselves.
But I love to watch their imagination blossom and watch them figure out how things work. Sometimes you get that little whimper that means “I can’t do this mom.” And the next second they have it all figured out and are on to the next thing.
I just love that.
That’s why I love putting educational and sensory developing toys in the kids Easter baskets. Instead of a basket of sugary candy, we incorporate age appropriate toys that encourage learning. This year Ryder’s Easter basket has some super fun Fisher Price goodies that are perfect for my on the go toddler.
Easter basket ideas for toddlers
- Rock A Stack – Each of the kids have had one of these stack sets. They are great for hand/eye coordination early on and then work great for problem solving later. I love watching the kids stack the different color rings on the tower.
- Laugh N Learn Sweet Manners Tea Set – Is there anything cuter than a mini tea party with your toddler? The answer of course is no. Ryley and I had many a tiny tea party with this set. It’s perfect for teaching shapes and patterns.
- Fisher Price Chatter Phone – Kids pick up early how to use phones. Ryder has been grabbing for mine since he was about 6 months. This chatter phone is a nice alternative for little ones.
- Fisher Price Babys 1st Blocks – I love watching little dimpled hands try to maneuver the blocks into their proper spot. The 1st blocks toy helps with hand/eye coordination, shape matching and color recognition.
- Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Storybook Rhymes – Ryder loves this storybook. We turn it on and he starts to hum the songs that the book plays. I enjoy watching him learn new songs since music is important at this age.
Besides the toys you can also add:
- Sippy cups
- Favorite snacks
These are just a few Easter basket ideas for toddlers. Feel free to add something special of your own to your little one’s Easter basket.
