By now toddlers’ gross motor skills are well developed and they can walk and climb independently, run and kick a ball. With their fast growing vocabulary, they may be even able to join few words to make sentences.
Coloring & Painting: Your child’s coloring skills have greatly improved and your lil one would make a new art everyday and come and show it to you. Crayons continue to be the best choice for your kid for safe coloring. You may introduce finger painting to your child and watch your kid dip his or her fingers and make creative designs.
Kick Play: Your toddler is a bundle of energy and will love to play with balls or toddler football. Watch your lil one kick and run behind the ball and giggle with happiness.
Stuffed Toys: Children at this age build close attachment to dolls and stuffed toys as they understand that they represent living things and can relate to them emotionally well. Some of them may talk to them, feed them and sleep with them. It is also a good way to teach a child about real people or animals. For eg: you can ask your child “where is the teddy’s nose” and help him or her point to the right place.
Books: Continue to engage your child with books with large and attractive pictures. Sit with your child and help your lil one identify the characters, objects or animals in the book. Read small stories and end it with a moral as this may be the precursor for teaching good values to your child in the upcoming years. Nursery rhymes, songs, and books with alphabets, numbers, and small words will make your child familiar with the concepts as your lil one gets ready to join a playschool soon.
