Take a look at our top picks of games for 2 year olds you can play at home! Includes board games and educational and learning activities that are age-appropriate for your toddler.
As a first-time mom, I quickly learned that there’s never one “right” way to play a game.
Whereas other kids loved sitting in the playground swing, my then-toddler would complain any time I tried to sit him on one. It turns out, his perfect game was standing on the ground, pulling a swing, letting it go, and watching it sway back and forth.
Kids can turn any existing game into one that suits them better. They may not be able to play the way a game is intended, but boy can they figure out different ways to entertain themselves just as well.
Still, you may have noticed that your 2 year old is now suddenly interested in playing games, particularly board or group games. Maybe you need new toys and games to keep him occupied, or a game he can play with other siblings. It also doesn’t help that he’s outgrown most of his baby toys.
As kids grow, they’ll find ways to play with whatever toy is nearby. But having fun, engaging and entertaining games for 2 year olds can make those days that much more fun.
