Many parents know that toddlers develop at different rates. Truthfully, I oftentimes felt unsure as to what I should be doing with my toddlers to help them reach their developmental milestones. Checklists gave me ideas💡on what I could be working on with my toddlers at home, in a fun and engaging environment. Here are some suggestions for what you can try out with your 2 year old toddler. Remember, you are your toddler’s best (and favorite) teacher💕
Go up and down stairs with your toddler. Let them hold onto a handrail or your hand.
Jump together. When they jump forward, do they take off and land with 2 feet?
Point and speak
Point to basic body parts and familiar clothing items. Ask them to tell you what they are.
Enjoy a book
Do they use 1-2 word questions such as, ‘What’s that?’, ‘Go bye-bye?’
And listen some more
Do they puts 2-4 words together such as, ‘mommy book’, or ‘more cookie please?’
Create a necklace
Have a tower building competition
Have fun with pop beads
