There’s always a lot of talk about adults having a bucket list or things to do before you’re 30, but what about toddlers!
There’s a lot of fun to be had in those early years and there’s no harm in having a list of amazing things to tick off.
Those first three years of a baby’s life fly by in a flash, after all, and they are the perfect time to create lasting family memories.
As my eldest recently turned three, I thought I would write a list of all the fabulous things she has already packed in to her life.
These are the 50 things to do before you’re three:
1. Have an ice cream by the sea
2. Meet Peppa Pig
3. Make a hand print
4. Build a den
5. Ride a pony
