Activities for Toddlers - Moving On [From: Toddlers]
HELPING YOUR PRESCHOOL CHILD
Moving On

Toddlers love to explore spaces and to climb over, through and into things.

What You Need
  • Stuffed animal or toy
  • Large cardboard boxes
  • Pillows
  • A large sheet
  • A soft ball
  • A large plastic laundry basket
  • Elastic
  • Bells
What To Do
  • Pillow jump. Give your child several pillows to jump into. (Toddlers usually figure out how to do this on their own.)

  • Box car. Give your child a large cardboard box to push around the room. He may want to take his stuffed animal or toy for a ride in it. If the box isn't too high-you'll most likely find your toddler in the box as well.

  • Basketball. Sit about 3 feet away from your child and hold out a large plastic laundry basket. Let her try throwing a large, soft ball into the basket.

  • Table tent. Cover a table with a sheet that's big enough to reach the floor on all sides. This makes a great playhouse that's particularly good for a rainy day.

  • Jingle bells. Sew bells onto elastic that will fit comfortably around your child's ankles. Then watch (and listen) as he moves about or jumps up and down.
As you do an activity, talk, talk, talk with your child about what the two of you are doing!
