 Playing on Mirrors

If you are anything like me, you sometimes struggle with getting your toddler or preschooler to play quietly on their own.

Playing on mirrors can be a fun and relaxing way for toddlers and preschoolers to play independently and quietly on their own, with you close by of course.

Open-Ended and Child Lead

To help foster more independent play in my 3 year old, I introduced this mirror play activity which is very open-ended and child lead.

I set out some glass markers and caps and just let her draw. My daughter loves to make up little stories and characters with the caps. She did this on her own for quite a while (read as 25-30 minutes).

I also set out her Jolly B for Kids Rainbow Blocks, which she carefully lined up along lines she already drew.

The caps are a great and inexpensive way to play with loose parts. She drew around them as well as lined them up along the coloured lines sorting them as she went along.

She also lined up the caps in a maze pattern (I helped her with this) and then used the glass markers to draw along the maze.

Clean Up

The glass markers wipe off easily with just a damp paper towel.
