[June Holidays Special] Activities With Toddler

It is no simple task trying to keep a toddler captivated, since he started crawling at around 9 months old, Asher has always been more keen in exploring than sitting down to complete activities.

Soon, I learnt that toys weren’t enough. And that was when I started googling for activities to keep him occupied and stumbled upon all these pinterest-worthy activities online. “Sensory play” is a phrase that often popped up whenever I was searching for new activities.

That’s the sad thing about living in Singapore where land is scarce. Unless you are freaking rich enough to live in a landed property with several rooms. While the rest of us peasants live in pigeon holes they call Public Housing.
