What’s the Potty List?

Posted by Lynette - on

 Have a Picnic with Poppy Cat - GB Toys

At the start of the year Cow and Gate conducted a survey of 1000 mums to see what the most crucial events should be experienced by children before they reach the age of three.  Think of it as a bucket list for toddlers.   The list was given the name ‘The Potty List’ and includes 36 must do activities according to the mothers that took part such as:

1. Made a mud pie

2. Baked a cake

3. Finger painted

4. Sung loudly in public

5. Climbed a big hill

6. Picked fruit

7. Danced with no inhibitions

8. Made sandcastles on the beach

9. Been chased by a monster

10. Jumped in a puddle so hard the water went in mummy's shoe too

11. Belly-flopped

12. Fed the ducks

13. Blown bubbles

14. Had a teddy bears' picnic

15. Chosen a favourite book

16. Ridden on the top of double-decker bus

17. Visited a museum

18. Been on a train ride

19. Fed an animal   

20. Grown cress in the shape of your name

The full list (found here) contains some funny suggestions as well as some brilliant ideas on what to do when you’re stuck for something to do.

An Idea for Today

The teddy bears picnic is an easy one to achieve and can be done either inside or outside the home.  Ask your child to go and gather their favourite toys such as B1 and B2, Poppy Cat and Driver Dan from the toy box, throw out a rug on the living room floor and enjoy the perfect picnic that can’t be disrupted by ants or bees!
