Two fun ideas: what to do with your toddler this month.
Tower construction in the living room
Building towers both boosts your child's motor skills and provides a foundation for mathematical understanding.
Which skills are supported? Motor skills, ability to sort, understanding of cause and effect, ability to speak
What do you need? Different colored building blocks, which are also different sizes
From different building blocks you stack a tower. Maybe your little one wants to help. It may also be waiting until you finish, and then throws the tower over with joy. Do not worry: building towers and throwing them back promotes understanding of cause and effect! As you pile up, count out loud how many blocks you need or name the colors. Dedicate your child to your plans: Will it be a big tower or a turret?
Mirror Mirror on the wall
Toddlers are great mimes and their best discipline is making faces. In the following game, you have a lot to laugh about and your little one also develops coordination and dexterity.
Which skills are supported? Imagination, motor skills, social skills
What do you need? Only himself
Face your child. Start with simple exercises: Extend your tongue, wave, stretch your arms high in the air, or hide your face behind your hands. Encourage your little one to imitate you. And then you swap roles: Now it's your child's turn, making gestures and facial expressions, and watching fascinated as you copy each movement.

Remember: every child develops at its own pace. If the games this week seem too early for your toddler, do not worry! Just try again later.
