activities for one year olds

I've realized over the last few weeks that my littlest kiddo (the babe), doesn't get much in terms of activities prepared for him. I spend so much of my time prepping and executing activities for my preschooler and kindergartner, but the babe strikes out. I'm lucky in that he is pretty independent and loves exploring on his own; very handy for a third kiddo! Most of my time with the babe is spent caring for and cuddling him, but not a lot of intentional activities are done.                                            


That is all changing now! I've discovered a secret. It is coincidentally titled DISCOVER! The amazing Jamie at Hands On As We Grow has authored DISCOVER: Hands on Weekly Activity Plans for One Year Olds eBook.
