I'm a stay at home mom. I go to college online, so I have all day to entertain my daughter. And we both love finding new things to do to keep ourselves entertained. She is just starting to color, but doesn't seem to like it very much yet. I read to her lots and she likes dancing, and singing and we do that often. Anything new we can try?

Activities for your 15 month old : Finger puppets or painting with pudding or cool whip. Just make sure her high chair tray is clean then put a scoop on their and have fun. Storytime at the library or local bookstore. sock puppets are great also. They are cheap. get a bucket or pan and put water in it. Then get 4 or 5 toys (blocks, ducks spoons) ask her whether she thinks they will float or sink and then find out. works great during bathtime also.

My toddler loves to do a few different things.

1. put shaving cream into a zip lock bag and add a few drops of food colour. They love to squish it all together.

2. put some cellophane in a onion bag, they love the hear the noises it makes.

3. playdough is fun and cheap. if you used the cook recipe it won't matter if she eats it.



I hope these ideas for activities for your 15 month old help. The were great for my toddler.

okay thank you all so much for ideas on activities for my 15 month old! I just bought a sesame street cook book for toddlers and we cook things together and she loves it! It gives me tips on how I can include her in the cooking! I will try your suggested ideas as well! :)

Sew some buttons on the finger tips of children's gloves, go around the house tapping on all sorts of surfaces to hear the different noises. Use metal and plastic buttons. Do you have a flattish bowl, pot or bucket you can put a bunch of flour, sugar (brown sugar is great) or some other medium in? Let her dig right in with a spoon and talk about how it feels, is it moldable, sticky, the color etc. Make sugar cookie dough and give her a small cup to roll it out with and use fun cookie cutters! Play "hide the button" with one her favorite toys. Make sure it's almost all visible in a place she doesn't have to go far to look for it. Let her hide it if she will. Good luck, and I would like to suggest the books "The Busy Book for Preschoolers" and "The Busy Book for Toddlers", they have GREAT, cheap ideas to entertain and teach your children with material you probably already have in your home! Good luck!

I also had the same question "what are some good activities to do with my 15 mo old". These are some great ideas I will use them. One I didn't see was a playhouse. I just got her a Step 2 little cottage and she loves it. She plays outside in it and loves that the door and windows open/shut. And of course loves the telephone. She also loves to sit on the inside bench and have her sippy cup and snack. I got her some cheap dishes to play with inside it and she loves that. The playhouse is small enough to bring inside when the seasons change. And these playhouses can be purchased used at yard sales and online for better pricing.

I have the same question. My mom suggested finger painting and black paper with chalk.

Boxes, totes, or laundry baskets always seem to work with little ones. My kids love to crawl in and out of them. Or you could build a fort and bring in her favorite toys or books to read. Pots and pans to make noise provide great activities for your 15 month old.

hm activities for your 15 month old... i have a big backyard, so i take my 21 month old daughter outside and pull her around in the wagon, you can do stuff like pick up leaves and show her how they crunch and crumble. My daughter loves hide and seek and tag, of coarse you have to make it easy for them but they love it. Pudding finger paints, messy but way fun plus its a snack! lol good luck!
