Toddler Lesson Plan: October

Last month I decided I wanted to create more structure and intentional play for my toddler. This lead me to the idea of creating weekly themes that would allow for us to learn casual lessons through song and play with a focus in mind. Rather than posting about this weekly, I created a monthly “toddler lesson plan” series that goes live at the beginning of each month.

The next few months will be a lot of fun with all the holidays coming up! I highly suggest looking on Pinterest to find simple crafts that you can tie into these weekly themes. You can keep this as simple or involved as you want!

Life happens and some weeks are crazy. We even jump in and out of these lesson plans. What I love about planning ahead is that on a slower week I already have ideas ready to go therefore I don’t have to scramble in the moment. It takes so much pressure off of myself and keeps our play time that much more fun!
