Fun Summer Activities for Toddlers

With longer days and warmer temperatures come plenty of opportunities for fun summer activities for toddlers designed to keep your little ones engaged and entertained.

From water play and scavenger hunts to nature walks and outdoor art projects, there are countless ways you can make sure your toddler has a blast while learning something new.

Being outside encourages physical activity, which helps toddlers stay healthy and develop motor skills such as coordination, balance, and strength. And of course, fresh air is always a bonus!

Fill up some water balloons and have your toddler toss them back and forth with a parent or sibling.
