Trolls Inspired Kids Toys & Sensory Activities

Trolls Inspired Kids Toys & Sensory Activities

If you have young kids then you know that kids like to stay super active. When I’m not saving my 2-year-old from daring stunts, I’m often crafting or painting with my girls. After nap time in the afternoon my kids often enjoy some screen time. They like watching shows such as the new Netflix series from DreamWorks Animation, “Trolls: the Beat Goes On“. My girls thought the Trolls movie was colorful and memorable with an upbeat soundtrack they like to dance to. The trolls-mania continues with the release of all new episodes that continue the journey with Poppy, Branch and the rest of the Trolls Village as they embark on even more Troll-tastic adventures!

We limit screen time to about 1 hour a day, which leaves a lot more hours to fill with interactive and engaging kids’ activities. Here are a few simple kids’ activities to encourage imaginative play, also featuring Jubilant balance bikes!

Where do you enjoy going on vacation? Our summer family travels took us to the California coast where we enjoyed camping along the beach in our RV motor home. We found so many great spots to go on family hikes and enjoy the sunny warm weather. Of course, summer weather comes with bugs, and hiking with kids comes with scraped knees.
