Pots and Pans


Get a few pots and pans on the floor. Add a wooden spoon or a ladle. Your child will enjoy making some music. You can join in and sing songs together. Exploring different beats can also be great fun.

This is a great activity to give you some time to cook.

You could create a “safe cupboard” that includes all the things they like to play with the most and tell them that’s their cupboard. Decorating it with stickers will make it all the more exciting. Needless to say that they will still go to all the other not so safe cupboards but at least you will know that’s the safest for them to explore 🙂
