8 Invitations to Play for toddlers
(many suitable for babies too)

These great posts all came from last weeks Tuesday Tots linkup
where we featured 10 Quiet Activities for Kids

What is an Invitation to Play?

One of the easiest ways to keep your toddler busy and learning is with a great Invitation to Play. 

An Invitation to Play is just as it sounds. Inviting your child to play with certain materials. Your job is to provide the collection of materials and your child's job is to investigate, explore and play with as they like. 

Invitations to Play should be open ended with no set outcome at the end. However, it is easy to steer an Invitation to Play towards particular learning areas without forcing the issue, simply by the choice of materials that you supply them with. For example, for sensory investigations you'd provide them with sensory materials. If your aim is for them to learn more about colours or shapes or numbers, then the materials you include in the Invitation to Play would include those colours, shapes or numbers etc.

Here are some fun ideas for various materials that you could set out for your child to explore that were linked up in last week's Tuesday Tots
