As any parent knows, the toys from the toy store are not always what get played with the most at home. Sometimes it’s the roll of tape from the desk, the box of band-aids, or yes, the broom, that get the most mileage with the three and under set.
Here is a list of my two-year-old daughter’s current favorite “playthings.” (And I’d love to hear the favorites in your house!)
In addition to the toys and non-toys listed in the slideshow above, my daughter also really likes the following:
- She loves, loves, loves band-aids. And I have to admit I usually buy an extra box when I’m at the store just to indulge her. (Or maybe it’s to indulge me. They are inexpensive, yet buy so much happy busy activity!)
- Art supplies. Her favorites are playdough, markers, and paint. She draws everyday and paints whenever I let her. Click here for a list of my top 11 favorite toddler art materials.
- Rocks and leaves and other nature items. Especially anything little that she can carry easily or put into her (or my) pockets.
What are your toddler’s favorite toys? Or if your children are older, what were their favorites when they were little? I’d love to hear!
