Summer Toddler Schedule + My Day
Brody is 19 months now , I can’t believe how he is growing so fast! Summer can be a crazy busy time but we still like to keep Brody on some what of a schedule. I find that when we follow a schedule Brody has better days and sleeps great too. Below I talk about my summer toddle schedule + my day. We do not follow this 100% all the time! We try are hardest but things come up and we go with the flow. As long has he has some type of structure and one good nap a day he is a happy kid ( and I’m a happy mom! )
Some days ( like today ) we do our structured play at the beach! I shared a little about it on my instagram. Here is what we did .
Summer Toddler Schedule
6:00 – 6:45 am – Miracle morning before he wakes up. Brody wakes up + breakfast ( of course I wrote this last week and this week he has been sleeping till 715!!! )
– I work- Mon- tuesday- Wed- thursday 7-8am out of house Brody hangs with dad or one of his grandparents .
8:30 – 9:30 am – free play, outside time, beach if its low tide – Workout if I can
9:30 – 10:30 am – structured play, activity, more purposeful time. Sometimes we do our structured play at the beach!
10:30 – 11:15– independent play time with age appropriate toys . Brody has always been good at playing with his toys by himself.
11:30 am – 11:45 pm – outside time, free play while I make lunch
11:45- 12:20 pm – lunch then nap. Workout if I didn’t get it in earlier. Prep dinner if needed. Tidy up the house & blog work . Sometimes I nap too! Brody sleeps 2+ hours here.
2- 2:30 pm – wake up from nap and have a snack
3:00 – 5:00 pm – beach time, free play, outside time and sometimes we go for a walk or bike ride
5:15 – 5:30 pm – dinner then we sometimes play outside one last time
6:00 – 6:45 pm – bath, get on pajamas, wind down. Movie while I clean up dinner
6:45 – 7:00 pm – read books
7:00 pm – bed
After Brody goes down I clean up the house + blog work. I always pick up Brody’s toys, put the puzzles back together, set up his play kitchen ect!
Structured play ideas
Again , sometimes I switch my days around but I do try to do a different structured play activity each day. Below are some ideas that we like! Id love to hear from you, what are your favorites? Comment below so we can try them too.
Monday: ABCs, numbers , nursery rhymes , naming objects , finding objects , shapes . I made a toy out of a box with different color holes and Brody matches the colors with balls.
Tuesday: motor skills, filling , dumping, throwing while counting, shapes, stacking, play dough. We use the water table a lot here and fill cups & bowls and transfer to new cups .
Wednesday : jumping, crawl through things, follower the leader, throw pillows, build forts, climb things . He loves to throw things! We throw pillows around , throw the ball to the dogs , climb under pool noodles ect
Thursday : Art, color, paint , play dough, music
Friday : Pick one form above , sensory toys
