Toddlers and Imagination

Around the age of 2, your toddler will begin really using his or her imagination and showing it through pretend play. Most of these scenarios will involve familiar props, such as stuffed animals, eating utensils and other things your child has used and is comfortable with.

This pretend play is fun and presents important teaching tools. Toddlers learn to work through problems in their play. Encourage these activities and even introduce new ideas.

Eventually, your child will look at an inanimate object in a whole new way. A pillow could be a car wheel, under the table could become a house. The imagination is powerful and wonderful at this age.
