Adventurous Toddlers

As a mom, I want to continuously promote a sense of adventure in my toddler every day for healthy overall development and independence!


I'm a boy mom. I was blessed with two active, always moving and always doing boys. Some people find that exhausting, but I'm thrilled with it. And I've made a promise to always promote a sense of adventure in my kids, from being a toddler through adulthood! It's important. Here's why:

Why having an adventurous toddler is so important for their development and how to get your toddler to use his/her brain and body with creative play
Have you ever been a caregiver to a small child, or been out with friends who have children, or perhaps you've experienced this with your own littles: "I'm bored!" No statement drives me crazier than that one! I feel like I hear it more and more and I see more and more pins with ideas on how to keep children entertained. Yikes! When did kids lose the ability to entertain and think for themselves?

I made a mother's promise to my sweet babies to always promote an adventurous spirit in them. I want them to dance fearlessly, to explore the world around them, to figure out how things work on their own. I want my sons to be autonomous and independent. I want them to be curious and thoughtful. I want my kids to use their brains and move their bodies.

I'm sure someday they'll become interested in movies and TV and video games and cell phones. Things that I personally squash an adventurous spirit if introduced too soon to children too young. I don't want Henry and Otto to learn how to sit and stare; I want them to know how to think and move! Sitting and staring will come soon enough with age. But for now, I'll cultivate my adventurous toddler and baby as much as possible. How does one achieve that though?

Even his sleep sack is an adventurous toy to Henry!

While I certainly don't have all the answers, I have a starting point. We don't spend afternoons in front of the television. We get outside and explore! Whether that's a walk to the park or just playing ball in the backyard, we're doing things. We play with blocks and puzzles, and Henry has even begun to help me cook. He's interested in developing his own games with balls and dinosaurs and helping me stir and put ingredients together. I want to keep my promise to my sons by doing these things every single day. So far, he's fearless and thoughtful and adventurous!

Pampers Premium Care diapers fit our active and adventurous lifestyle. Henry has yet to have one leak from these top tier diapers, and that's saying a lot from my little mover! They're hypoallergenic, which is important to me as a mom of two boys with super sensitive skin. Even better, they're easily available at Walmart and walmart.com. Pampers helps me help my sons have adventurous spirits by providing the best quality diapers that keep us exploring all day long.

  1. I love your Mother's Promise, Paige, and I totally support it. Growing up, if my siblings and I ever said "I'm bored," it would drive my mom crazy. This didn't happen often because my mom was like you and always had us doing stuff- fun things. The times we would say we're bored were the times we were inside watching too much tv; a quick trip outside or away from technology is all it takes to restore the fun.

  2. If I ever said to my mother growing up that I was bored, I swear she just enrolled us in another sport or outdoor camp. I love that you get rid of those screens, I can't even begin to tell you the rage I feel on a daily basis about how kids can only be soothed now by watching Dora the Explorer on their parents iPhones. Such a great post!

  3. I love the promise you made. We try to get out every day as well, but with the weather it can definitely be tough. If baby girl ever says she's bored, I will take away every toy and book she owns and show her what real boredom looks like, haha!

  5. Love these photos of your Henry :) He looks like he is having so much fun! Mine is always on the move and trying to get into new things. I love that even a simple thing like a sleep sack can be a fun toy for these littles. Great promise too!

  6. I totally agree with you - especially when they are so young, they need to play with their toys, each other and outside...like we did!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  7. When I was little I always played outside and it was so much fun! I hope my children are the same way some day.

  8. i think this is a great attitude/promise to your boys. i wasn't very adventurous as a kid, but i could certainly entertain myself. my mum never let us say we were bored, or sit around doing nothing, otherwise she'd make us clean! so we played with toys or played outside. we never watched tv except as a family at dinner (and at a certain age, i moved to the kitchen to eat on my own with a book because my brothers would eat loudly to annoy me, but hey that's a different story haha)

  9. It makes me so happy that you aim to have kids that aren't addicted to electronics. I've seen it both ways, and I have to say.... my kids aren't going to touch a cell phone until they're 20. Hahah -- might be an exaggeration, but you get what I mean.

Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching
    through the internet, I saw a testimony on how Dr. Imafidon helped someone in curing his HIV disease using his healing
    Herbs, quickly I copied his email just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to a preparation for the herbs items, of which I did exactly what he instructed me to do, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he
    did, few days after i went back to the same hospital that previously confirmed me as HIV/AIDS positive and this time the result declared me negative to the deadly disease of HIV/AIDS....so I decided to share my testimony, that nothing is impossible with God, God use a man to healed me.
