Very similar to her "365 Toddler Activities that Inspire Creativity: Games, Projects, and Pastimes That Encourage a Child's Learning and Imagination"; same issues with formatting.

This is a nice resource. Some of the ideas are very simple and obvious-seeming (throw balls of socks into a laundry basket to teach hand-eye coordination) and they almost make you want to roll your eyes, but they still got me to think and remember: Sometimes it's the simple and obvious-seeming that is the best for young kids, not fancy, whizzing gadgets or overly complicated crafts. Quality time and creativity are important for toddlers and their parents. So yeah, I've thrown some balls into a b ...more

Lots of good little ideas in here, some are very simple and things we do all the time, others were simple but we just hadn't thought of or some we had forgotten about it over time.

This book may be good for someone who hasn't worked with children before or for a playschool teacher or daycare worker looking for new ideas. For me, however, the activities that are good for my son are already common knowledge (ie: I Spy, Follow the Leader, etc); and the other activites are better suited for groups. Some activities are so cheesy that my two year old would wrinkle his nose.

I did get one great idea for his sandbox, though, so it wasn't a complete loss! There may be one great ide

I have read several books of this type and this is my favorite by far. Most of the items required for the activities are things I already have on hand. Most of the activities require very little preparation time -- which is great since you don't want to spend 30 minutes preparing an activity for a toddler whose attention span is only 10 - 15 minutes tops. The variety of activities is wonderful. My kids have loved almost all of the activities I have introduced to them from this book.

Recommends it for: parents
This is pretty much a just collection of activity ideas for toddlers with some parental philosophy thrown in. There are some that I am excited to try, but I was actually surprised that there wasn't more that I was interested in. I do like all the recipes to make your own playdough/paints/etc.

I have a 2yo, 3yo and 7yo and this book is full of awesome activities no matter where you are. I now have a nice quiet peaceful house.

Helpful to keep Owen busy. We did a few activities, and this one seems to bridge the two to three year gap better than other "toddler" books I've read recently.

Found this book very helpful keeping a toddler occupied, happy, and doing productive things while also caring for a newborn.
