Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Active Toodlers -

YOUR LIT­TLE ONE’S ASK­ING TO GO ON THE IPAD, BUT YOU’VE TOLD HIM HE CAN ONLY HAVE IT AF­TER DIN­NER. HAV­ING EXHAUSTED MOST OF HIS FAVOURITE AC­TIV­I­TIES, WHAT CAN YOU DO?

A Do a toy declutter. You get to tick off a chore and he gets a play ses­sion. B Get out of the house. Even a scoot to the corner shop can be a fun ex­pe­di­tion. C Start googling ‘toddler ac­tiv­ity tired mummy on the edge’.

YOUR BEST OP­TION: A/B

“Younger tod­dlers ben­e­fit from di­rec­tion in their play,” says Joanne. “Too many toys can be over­whelm­ing, so put some away and ro­tate what you have.” Go for a walk to cure cabin fever for you and him.
