Alright, here it is. A simple week of activities for 1 year olds.
After sharing the four general weekly planners with my incredible newsletter subscribers, I asked if they had any suggestions for new weekly planners.
By far, everyone wants to know what to do with their one year old!
Of course, there’s plenty of activities to do with 1 year olds, especially sensory activities, those are great at this age. But I try to make this a diverse week for the kids.
In each week for the activities planners, I try to include:
- a gross motor activity
- a fine motor activity
- a craft
- an art project
- an outdoor activity
- an experiment or something to get them thinking
- a family activity for Sunday
