2 year old favorites

2 year old favorites

Now that Hayden is just about 2, we are finding that his tastes are changing and his attention span is getting longer. Here are a few of our current favorites at this age:

1. Easy Reader Books: Hayden enjoys longer books than the usual board book variety and loves to sit with me in his teepee with a big pile of books. Because some picture books tend to be kind of long for the average 2-year-old, we've found that easy reader books are great for this age. There are lots of pages and a story to follow but we can turn the pages quickly and Hayden likes to memorize the phrases on some of the pages. Some that are in heavy rotation here include: The Berenstain Bears and the Missing Dinosaur Bone, Go Dog Go!, and Are You My Mother? 

2. Musty, Grow-Up! Seat. A few months ago, it became evident that Hayden was over his highchair/tray combo. He liked to sit at the table with us so we bought this booster seat so that he could reach the table. He loves having his own little spot and I like the modern design and easy-to-clean feature of this seat.

3. Crayola Sidewalk Chalk. We love this particular box of chalk (okay maybe me more than him!). It has tons of pretty colors just like a box of Crayola Crayons and it's only $4.99. Plus the chalk has angled tops for easier drawing. Chalk can keep us entertained for at least an hour on a sunny day.

4. Honest Sunscreen. We've been buying this nonstop this summer. Its safe from all the scary ingredients that can be found in other sunscreens and it doesn't have a strong smell. For all our hours at the park, beach, pools, etc. neither of us has gotten even a little bit of a burn.

5. See Kai Run Sandals. We got these at the beginning of the summer and Hayden has worn them almost everyday. They are made of good quality leather and have withstood water, heat, and lots of dirt and sand. They are cute and can be worn with dressier outfits or play clothes. Plus they run a little wide (according the the saleslady) so it's easy to get them on and off in a hurry.

6. Brio Trains. We pull out the train set and all the tracks nearly everyday. Hayden has gotten pretty good at connecting the tracks and trains. He still gets frustrated that he can't do it all by himself but trains are definitely a favorite toy in our house.
