Activities For 2 Year Olds
Free Toddler Games and Fun Learning

Activities for 2 year olds give you plenty of opportunities to play free toddler games and have fun! 

From toddler cooks to playing make-believe, your child will love learning with you.

Our easy homeschooling activities have all been tried and tested on my own children William and Catherine.

We'll show you all our favorite homeschool toddlers activities and you'll soon find out dressing-up games are one of them!

Here's 2 year old Catherine showing off our easy to make homeschooling Plains Indian feather headdress - which is where the toddler fun and games begin!

Let's start with free toddlers games that are guaranteed winners:

Play Homeschool Make-Believe

After the age of two most toddlers begin to play games that involve some make-believe.

Role-playing has to be one of the most fantastic free toddler learning activities ever!

They'll be learning how to express themselves and try out all the fun things big people say. You'll see lots of ideas for fun activities for 2 year olds in our pretend games traveling the world in trains and planes, spotting elephants with toy binoculars as we go, in our homeschooling Free Preschool Activities.

Role play is great for social development as your child starts to learn how to play with other toddlers and children.

 A few homeschooling props will help encourage your toddler to play make-believe games.

And you don't need to buy expensive costumes!

  • Get together a collection of homeschool hats, scarves, helmets, bags, belts, cloaks, sparkly fabric and dressing-up clothes for toddlers to play games with. Thrift shops are ideal hunting grounds.

  • Look out for anything which would make a homeschooling toy vet's kit. A strip of white cloth makes a perfect free homeschooling Band-Aid and you'll be amazed how many toddler learning activities you cover as your cuddly toys develop sore paws and spots! 

But the best way to have fun activities for 2 year olds playing make-believe games is to get your toddler learning how to make simple homeschool costumes together.

  • Ask your toddler to help you select the feathers to go in their headdress. You can collect lots for free when you're out on nature walks.  A few peacock feathers look great too.

Free homeschool hats of various descriptions are perfect for getting everyone in the mood for toddlers games. They're also easy to make with your toddler.

Some homeschooling ideas which should spark off lots of free toddler games:

  • Homeschool wizard's hat out of a cone of card.
  • Free homeschool animal masks from paper plates. We show you how in our free homeschooling Homeschooling Kids Crafts.

Toddler Cooks

Activities for 2 year olds are certainly fun if you can eat them!

It might sound a bit stressful cooking together, but, if you choose the right homeschooling ideas, your toddler will really enjoy 'helping' - just be prepared for some mess!

Here are some great free homeschool toddler learning activities for the kitchen:

  • Use our easy homeschooling salt dough recipe to get your toddler learning how to make lots of free play food alongside you as you prepare lunch.
  • See if your toddler would like to stir some dried pasta in a bowl. It's the stirring that's fun!
  • It makes it more enjoyable if you can think of real activities for 2 year olds they can help with.

  • Can your toddler stir cheese into their own pasta?
  • What about chopped fruit or a spoonful of honey into yogurt?
  • How about learning how to cut some cookies out of pastry?
  • Let your toddler decorate homeschool cup cakes with writing icing or different sprinkles of chocolate, cherries etc. This is always one of our top favorite homeschooling activities for 2 year olds!
