Drawing in the dirt with a toddler


It's ridiculously simple, free, fun, outdoors, active... and works on some important visual motor skills too! Click here to see some photos taken from our drawing in the dirt fun...









Do you love a bit of dirt drawing too? What games has it inspired you to play?

  1. Anna, I love the simplicity of this. What a wonderful way for a toddler to practice listening for directions, concentration, balance, etc. etc.
