Two fun ideas: what to do with your toddler this month.
Get in, get ready to leave!
Your toddler may feel like making a cardboard train to later pull it across the flat. Please enter everything!
Which skills are supported? Motor skills, pushing and pulling, understanding of forms
What do you need? Three or more boxes of different size and shape, drawstring, scissors and maybe something to drill holes in the boxes.
If the cartons do not have lids (such as shoe boxes), first cut open the top so that railway cars open at the top are formed. Drill a hole in each of the first and last cars on one side of the wall and one hole in each of the middle cars on two opposite sides of the wall. Cut a piece of cord (about 15 cm long) and tie the first box to the second box. You can do the same with the other cartons until the last "railroad car." Your little one can now collect stuffed animals and dolls and let them travel by train through the apartment.See together what happens when there are fewer "passengers on board," The train will be easier. What happens if you go into one of the boxes with one foot? Consult together when the train is too heavily loaded, too easy or just right!
A colorful day!
Declare a certain day of the week a "colorful day." The following game will help your toddler recognize and name colors, and it's also great fun!
Which skills are supported? Recognize and name colors, sort
What do you need? Everyday things in the color of your choice
The idea of the game: Choose a color and plan the day in "red", "yellow", "green", etc. For example, on a "red day" you could eat red strawberry jam for breakfast, then paint Take a red picture with your child, pick red flowers, look for red cars, and eat spaghetti with red tomato sauce for dinner. And if your child has enjoyed the colorful day, there will soon be another color - a yellow day, for example.
