Play to Learn

As your toddler grows, you’ll notice ever-improving hand-eye coordination and more control over his or her fingers. Look for toys or safe objects that encourage this.

Try these play ideas:

  • Show your child how to fold paper.
  • Have her try to put large square pegs into matching holes.
  • Have him make a tower out of blocks.
  • See if she has a better idea now of the function of various objects—talking on a toy phone, for example.

You may even start to see pretend play, where your child imagines that a simple block is a car.
