Find the bee- Toddler color learning activity


A couple of months back when Sammy was showing interest in colors, I came up with this easy activity idea which is a big hit with her . This activity is so engaging and doesn’t need much prep and fun way to learn more colors. This would be an appropriate activity for 18+ months taby or whenever your toddler starts showing interest in colors. Apart from learning colors, Sammy learned how to close her eyes as a part of the game, we quickly switched roles and she asked me to close my eyes and she hid the bee under the flower.
She picks this activity from the cubbie by herself and starts playing on her own these day while I sit in the corner and cry seeing her play all by herself and doesn’t need me anymore.

Activity ideas using pool noodle

We made a quick Dollar Tree run over the weekend and picked up few stuff for Sammy’s activities. First thing that caught Sammy’s attention  was a pool noodle. She was thrilled to see it for some reason. So, I had to bring it home and do a quick Pinterest search and found so many awesome ideas. Here are a few that were tried, tested and loved by a 18 month old. For all the activities below, you need to cut the pool noodle into smaller rings like in the picture below.

BLW | Oats Pancake

I have been making pancakes since Sammy was 6 months but never had the patience to click pictures and forget updating on the blog. I have tried pancakes with all sorts of flour- whole wheat, multi grain, ragi flour, oats etc. Oats is the best of all, I absolutely love the texture and the taste. Also, gotta love how easy it is to make. Blender pancakes are the best ever!

BLW | Dryfruit Ladoo


Sammy and I made this dry-fruit laddu for Diwali this year.  She helped me dump everything in the blender and I let her make some laddus which ended up on the floor. xD But it’s fun cooking with her and this is the only way she lets me cook. My husband and I both have a sweet tooth and no prizes for guessing, Sammy has a sweet tooth too! I let her have one of these laddus for her mid-morning or evening snack along with some milk. She is the happiest when I let her have anything sweet and I don’t mind as these are sugar free and very healthy

BLW | French Toast

Sammy loves french toast and I’m so glad she does. *touchwood*. I almost gave up on eggs after she rejected omelette and scrambled eggs multiple times. I made this french toast and she gobbled it like there’s no tomorrow. I love how easy it is to make and Sammy loves finger foods, so it’s a win-win.
