21 Days Of Baby-Toddler Summer Fun
Day 20: Adventure Park Fun
At one years old, we’re not quite making it to the Amusement park just yet, but we don’t have to miss out on the fun. On today’s edition of 21 Days of Baby Toddler Summer Fun we’re taking on Adventures made just for our toddlers.
Play-land For Toddlers
Diaper Bag Essentials
Today’s fun is brought to you by little buildings, tot sized fun, and tiny adventures.
Find your nearest indoor or out door play-land and take a drive to Fun Town, Dreamland, or whatever cute little name they give it. Hopefully you can find a toddler specific play spot made just for your tiny tot. At just a year old, your little baby might not be able to take full advantage of the play area just yet, but there will be plenty to explore and take in to keep them entertained.
Find your nearest play spot, pack the car, lather on the sunblock, pack the bag full of food and drinks, and pile in the car. Make your way to Toddler Fun Town and embark in tiny people approved adventures. Unleash your tiny one and watch as they suck up all the fun.
What To Expect
If you are lucky enough to find a true little adventure land, there may be a playground, some tiny houses and play areas set up, water play, sand pits, places they can climb in and out of, and fun activities to explore that they can get their little fingers on. What a great place to hang out with other little kids the same age and maybe even exhaust them enough that they will go to bed on time. No guarantee’s, come on, you should know this by now.
Take It In
Watch your little dart around, zig-zag, duck, try to climb, and have the time of their little life, doing tiny little things. Let them lead the way. Help them climb the ramps and navigate around the other kids. Let them get dirty in the sandpit, let them get wet in the water park, let them put on the dress up clothes, take them in to the ball pit (supervised), and just let them run free. Let them lead the way and pick what they want to do.
Let’s be real here for a second. Yes, we love our child’s little giggles, and we are willing to do what ever it takes to make them completely and utterly happy for a long period of time. However, with that being said, we as parents can only tolerate running up and down ramps, in and out of holes, slapping spinners, jumping, twirling, and dashing around so much before we become utterly exhausted. “Can you please do something else,” tends to slip out of our mouths after the 18,000 time of helping our toddler up and down, over and under, in and out, so many times before out feet hurt, our backs ache, and our brain is about to pop.
Hopefully you brought something fun for lunch, because oh my god. Help. We just want an adult beverage, some alone time with our spouse and and piece of cheesecake. And to top it off, you now have to now carry your child surfboard style, kicking and screaming all the way back to the car. Yes!
Parenting is fun. Isn’t it so fun?
