50 things to do before you’re 3

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

6. See a show

7. Make slime

8. Bake cupcakes (check out my cupcake recipe here)

27. Play a musical instrument (even if it’s just banging a wooden spoon on a saucepan!)

44. Learn the words to your favourite song and sing it

48. Paint some pottery

49. Visit a farm

50. Make a necklace using string and dry, uncooked pasta

I hope this list gives your toddler some inspiration! Are there any things that your toddler has enjoyed doing that aren’t on the list? I would love to hear from you.
