  • i dont have a one year old yet but heres some ideas and i know some worked for my mom with my lil sister
    Park Play. One-year olds love to move around. Don't limit yourself to your neighborhood park. Look for a park with lots of grass, shady areas for hot days, baby swings and small sized playground equipment.
    Flash Cards. At twelve-months, toddlers are developing language skills. Find flashcards made of cardboard (similar to baby board books) with words on one side and shapes or animals on the other. Describe the words and the pictures.
    Pick Up. Take out a few plastic containers and some o shaped cereal bits and let your child practice putting the cereal into the containers. This also makes a great snack! Or, give him a pile of clothes and a laundry basket.
    Tub Time. For extra fun use foamy bubbles. Try soap crayons made especially for bathtub use. You can purchase letters and numbers to stick to the wall of the bathtub. After

  • Here's what we do: morning - wake up, get dressed, make and have breakfast, he plays near me while I clean up the kitchen, then we brush teeth, read, and then usually stay home and clean/laundry/etc while he plays (except Wed we go to the library). Snack is around 9:30, lunch is around 11-11:30, nap is at 12. He wakes up around 2:30-3 typically, and then have another snack. Afternoons we try to get out of the house - museum, playgroup, park, zoo, errands, whatever. If we stay home, we read, play with his toys, jump on pillows, color, etc. Dinner is around 5:30, he gets a smoothie around 6:30 (he's a picky eater - this rounds him out), start winding down around 7 (clean up, PJ's, brush teeth, read bedtime books), lights out around 7:30. We don't really play too many "games", unless you count jumping on the bed, peek-a-boo, or me stacking blocks while he knocks them down. Games are kind of hard at this age.

  • My day with DS usually consists of the following:
    5-7 wake up
    7-8 eat and drink a bottle
    8-10 play
    10-12 fuss or nap or quiet time
    12-1 eat and bottle
    1-2 play
    2-4 fuss or nap or quiet time
    4-5 eat and bottle
    5-6 play
    6-7 bath time
    7-8 eat and bottle
    8-9 bedtime
    this is his routine now a days
    games we play are peek a boo, we dance, we use stand and play table, exersaucer, crawl around, cartoons.....
    hope this helps
