Five minute fun activities for busy people to do with little kids

Games + Activities

Little Ones

On this page you will find all of my five minute ideas to keep little ones roughly aged 1-3 busy. Activities that actively encourage all of the key skills little ones at this age need to develop, but without them realising it! Things like fine and gross motor skills, speech and language, and starting to perhaps introduce a few letters or numbers into their play. I also talk about ways to set up and lay out toys for maximum impact (and to perhaps buy you five minutes of peace). Head to my Tips and Advice page if you’re wondering ‘Why I don’t do games and activities for 0-12 month olds” or “How to Encourage Independent Play.” And don’t forget to always follow The Golden Rule.

See the tabs at the top of each game which tells you which skills it’s designed to support.
