What are some educational and fun activites for toddlers?
My son is 17 almost 18 months. I think we watch entirely too much tv so we've been watching it in the mornings only. I still feel like this is too much tv considering tv isn't recommended at all for children this age. I'm a loss for activites to engage my son in though. He loves to read, so much so that he doesn't play alot with his toys which also concerns me a bit. Right now we read, play animal identification games(he's really into animals) and we sing a lot, mostly just about what were doing like making lunch or something. He also really likes to play outside but I don't know what to do with him out there. He mostly wants to pet our dog but he's too big for him to play with right now. I try to take him next door to our neighbors garden to look at veggies but he doesn't seem to interested. I'm a loss. I want to be the best parent I can be and do for him all that I can but I feel like I'm failing and were not doing enough.
Please ignore any typos. I'm on my phone and sometimes it autocorrects and I don't realize it. I'll fix it when ever I'm on the computer.
