Two fun ideas: what to do with your toddler this month.
The teddy is hungry
Your toddler probably practices eating with the spoon. This is really fun, even if the favorite teddy is allowed to be fed: Once your baby has understood how to move imaginary food into the teddy's mouth with a spoon, it is much easier to get real food into your own mouth!.
Which skills are supported? Motor skills, imagination, independence
What do you need? A bowl, a spoon, a teddy (or another stuffed animal)
Put the teddy in a chair, buggy or high seat - the important thing is that your little one can comfortably reach the stuffed animal while seated. Give your child the bowl and spoon they know from real meals. Say, "Teddy is hungry! Come on, let's feed it! "Act as if the bowl contains some liquid (yogurt or soup) that can be quickly spilled, and encourage your little one to feed the teddy with the spoon while talking to him. For example, you could say, "Hmmm, that's the teddy's taste," or "O, not so much at once. Otherwise the teddy will not do that. "
Roll down the ramp
Cars, balls or even empty toilet paper cardboard rolls to roll down a ramp is great fun! And while your child happily lets everything roll, it even learns something about the law of gravity!
Which skills are learned? Gross motor skills, spatial awareness, understanding of forms
What do you need? A ramp (it can hold anything long and sturdy enough, such as an inverted tray, a wooden board, or even a large hardcover book), toys, and other things that roll
For the ramp, lean one end of the tray or board against the sofa or stack of books. Try out all you can do to roll down the ramp: toy cars, flummis, oranges or cardboard rolls. A variation: Instead of using the ramp, use a long cardboard roll (for example a wrapping paper roll) as a tunnel!
