I have read that play is very important part of brain development, it helps with their imagination, helps them cognitively, promotes creativity helps them explore and learn from their environment and oodles of other good stuff their little brains need and plus it's fun and way better than any device app designed to attract our little ones from real play
So, I take play and activity time seriously every morning after breakfast we do some sort of play/learn activity. We have lots of fun together she looks forward to it and I secretly do too, it beats folding laundry any day.
I have different bins set up with all sorts of activities crafts, sand play, playdoh, blocks, etc...
Here she is exploring with cake batter. Oh the fun..
She really enjoys all these activities, and I really enjoy watching her explore and play. There are times we just lay on the hammock and read books, take a walk and talk about our surroundings. Two is such a fun age. Any activity or play makes her so happy.
