Between a new job, a new schedule, and a very distracted toddler — it was definitely time for some new school activities! But I decided to do something new — make a week of easy tot school, utilizing past activities and anything I could come up with quickly! I have to admit, I am happy with the results!

So here is our quick set of 7 truly random tot school activities!

  1. Outer Space Stampers
  2. Tricky Triangle
  3. Tongs and Pom Pom Match
  4. Dried Peas & Salt Pouring
  5. Beady Worms
  6. Counting Foam Cubes
  7. Bunny Peek-a-Boo


Outer Space Stampers

Tricky Triangle

  • A favorite little game – I gave him the luxury of 15 pegs because he just does not like that empty hole!

Tongs and Pom Pom Match

Dried Peas & Salt Pouring

  • A variation on another successful activity
  • Used dried peas instead of rice and included a tiny funnel
  • A few days later we used pasta rings and some old wild rice along with the salt

Beady Worms

Counting Foam Cubes

  • Simply a favorite Lakeshore Learning math tray and 30 dollar store foam cubes.
  • He can aptly count to 11 but this may help us connect those additional numbers!

Bunny Peek-a-Boo

  • The cutest game — Bunny Peek-a-Boo!
  • Again, we only gave him the easiest cards. He hasn’t seen this for about a month so we’ll see how he does.

More than anything, this easy tot school non-theme was good for me. I had a goal of setting up something in 10 minutes; it more like 20. But still, it was nice to know I can set up something decent, quickly, and that we know have plenty of supplies and tools to do so!

We do have a formal theme coming up next — the seasonally appropriate Weather. This may actually last up to two weeks — we are still deciding!
