We are constantly coming up with (and cleaning up!)  one year old activities  in my house.

That’s why I’m excited  to share these one year old activities that are in baskets, bottles, and bins because they are so easy to put out for little ones.  We put baskets and bins of toys out for my son to explore and both of my kids enjoy the sensory bottles.  Each of these 30+ one year old activities  are open-ended play that will keep babies busy and learning, too!

one year old activities that are in baskets, bottles, and bins.  There such easy ways to keep babies busy and learning, too!

I love these play ideas for one year olds because you don’t need to go out to the store to make them!

So many of these baskets, bottles, and bins are put together with items from around the house.  We’ve found that putting my one year olds toys in themed baskets really helps with clean up time, too.
