Get kinetic sand. It's super awesome. U will also enjoy playing. And best part is no cleaning is required after playing is over

Hello Akshaya, for your 2 year old, don't worry about doing an activity for motor skills. 2 year Olds will tell you what all they can do - follow them and their leads. When are walking and trying to run, let them run and if they fall, see what they do and how they get up. This is about using their gross motor strength to use their body. When they are pulling stuff, give them opportunity to raise hands, get on toes to actually pull things - be careful that there is nothing heavy or dangerous - just soft toys, or soft material. Allow them to dry small clothes like napkins, their clothes to dry on a rack and put the clips and similarly, take off the clips and fold the clothes. Allow them plenty of time and space to scribble - only with block/jumbo crayons or best on slate with fat chalks. Allow them to open and close boxes of their toys, cookies, that need varying strength. This will take care of most of your motor skills. Just be careful to use child friendly and safe materials. Have fun!!

Well, you can play Stacking and Sorting objects in size,  colors,  Building Blocks,  Play Clay Modelling,  Throw and catch a ball,  kicks the football,  jump in the  air,  hide and seek,  let's run,  Go and catch the goal etc.  Hope this suggestion helps you a lot.  Happy Parenting 🙌
