Two-year-olds love fun activities, but they typically need some help in brainstorming and organization. Ideal activities for 2-year-olds consist of crafts, coloring, playing in the park, watching a movie, reading a book, playing with their toys, going on treasure hunts, taking self-portraits, and playing hide and seek.
There are countless activities that are fun for 2-year-olds. The real trick for entertaining children of this age is not in coming up with the proper activity but to get excited about the activity with them. Two-year-olds are easily excitable. They want you to have a good time alongside them.
Two-year-olds have creative enough imaginations that they are able to enjoy anything from walking through the cereal aisle to spending several hours at a park. A good imagination can turn many mundane activities into a fun experience for a 2-year-old. Two-year-olds love crafts, so encourage them to draw and color on whatever scrap paper you have lying around the house. If they are getting bored, tell them to go hide so that you can come find them. If they seem restless, take them outside to play. If you are too busy to play with them, help them pull out some of their favorite toys and get them started on a game so they can play by themselves successfully.
