All you need for this fun toddler activity is a few rolls of streamers in bright colors. There are lots of different ways to play. You can hold the streamers while you dance and wave them in the air. Two people can dance together while holding a streamer between them. Toss the streamers in the air and try to catch them while they float to the ground. Call out the color of streamer your older toddler should try to catch.
Tie some long streamers to a hat rack or broom handle and dance around the May Pole. Leave a trail of streamers on the floor and let your toddler follow the trail to find you. Let the streamers trail in the breeze behind you as you run. Use your imagination and think of even more ways to have fun. The ideas listed here come from the book Wonderplay Too! by Freeta Reitzes and Beth Teitelman.
