Have you ever heard the term "Tabies" before? Yeah me neither! Well not until I went searching the net for some activities I could do with my One year old daughter and I came across the blog of former teacher & childhood education expert Susie. Susie's site focuses on bringing hands- on, play based learning back to families and the classroom. While diligently scoping out her page I found exactly what I was looking for on her pose 30+ Easy Activities for 1 Year Olds.

On this particular post Susie shared that "tabies" are no longer babies, but most certainly aren't fully toddlers either. She went on to further share that they are mobile, intuitive, verbal, but not verbal enough to converse and reason with them. Our wild, free, and fearless tabies are stuck between babyland and toddler world and are just just wanting to figure out where they fit in (however that works). Nonetheless, I have compiled a list of fun activities to do with your tabies that I've done or intend on doing based on fellow mommy bloggers. All information is linked below. Enjoy!
