Dancing feet: a rainy-day activity for restless toddlers
It looks like summer is coming to an end in Vancouver. With a ton of rain on the horizon, and a few weeks ahead of my daughter starting preschool, I had to think on my feet (no pun intended) to come up with some fun indoor activities to fill our week.
To keep boredom at bay, we cranked the tunes, stretched our baby toes and danced the day away with this super simple activity.
All you need is a few footprints and some tape. We bought these foam footprints at the dollar store, but for some added fun, you can always trace your toddler’s feet on colourful construction paper.
Add a piece of tape to the backside of each footprint and start sticking them down. We made a hopping pathway into Layla’s play tent, and then stretched another trail across our couch. At the end of our hopping adventure, Layla was out of breath and laughing on the floor.
Keep the fun times rolling by turning your feet into a craft project afterward.
And there you have it- rainy-day, indoor fun – just a hop, skip and jump away.
