Two fun ideas: what to do with your toddler this month.
For toddlers it's hard to share with others. When you throw a ball back and forth, it not only promotes hand and eye coordination, it also helps in dispensing and sharing.
Which skills are supported? Throw, catch, share
What do you need? A light ball
A simple ball game can show your child that sometimes you have to give something (in this case the ball) to get it back. Stand close to each other at the beginning and carefully throw the ball over to your child. (Get ready for a return pass!) If your child catches the ball better, you can increase the distance. If your little athlete still finds it difficult to catch the ball, try using a balloon as it moves much slower. Regardless of whether the ball was caught or not, always praise your child!
Art from garbage
Once your baby has found favor with "art from garbage", you will see empty yogurt cups and egg cartons with completely different eyes!
Which skills are supported? Motor skills, understanding of forms
What do you need? Many different packaging (for example, yogurt cups, egg cartons, tea boxes, etc.), colored paper, stickers and other decorations.
Protect the crafting table with newspaper and put the clean "garbage" on top of it Explain to your child that they are allowed to make whatever they want, maybe your little one has a concrete idea, but it is more likely that your child will be It may be necessary to help gluing together - but let your kid decide what to do, and when the "rough work of art" is done decorating. Packaging can not always be painted well. Instead, work with stickers, craft or crepe paper or even pictures from newspapers!

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.
