I am new to the group. I have a toddler that keeps me very much on my feet. He wants to jump from learning to playing. Do anyone have ideas on how I can make this more enjoyable for him and take his mind off of his stuff monkey?

Hi! How old is your LO? Try to incorporate play into learning! Make it active, like if you're teaching colors, instead of saying "Which ball is green?" Say "Throw the green ball to me!" Stuff like that. Good luck and have fun!

At that age it's always best to mix play/learning

Playing is how they learn๐Ÿ˜‰
If he tends to float from one thing to the next, I'd just have a few things that incorporate skills with play.

For example,
Pretend kitchen=play with pretend foods, but also name items like egg..what does egg start with? E!; Or which is heavier the pan or the bread? Etc etc

If you are reading together, keep the stories short and quick. Then move on. As time goes on, he will get better about staying put.

Just a couple of examples. You can make just about any play time educational in some way, without them knowing!๐Ÿ˜„
Good luck
