We play! 17 months old

Two fun ideas: what to do with your toddler this month.

Let soap bubbles burst

Soap bubbles exert a magical fascination on children of all ages. The following game too!

Which skills are supported? Coordination of hand and eye, motor skills
What do you need? soap bubbles

If you do not mind small splashes of soapy water in the apartment, you can play this game indoors as well. Otherwise, grab kid and soapy water and turn garden or park into a fairy world. Produce some soap bubbles and show your child how to make the iridescent balls burst. Big bubbles will get you when you are slow and careful, many small ones are caused by fast blowing. If you moisten your hands, you can even catch a bubble on your finger without it bursting. A trick that will amaze your little one!

It has a hand and a foot!

It's likely that your little one is already becoming an "art lover" - at least when it comes to his own works! It'll be a while before the little artist can easily handle the paint and the brush, but in the meantime, his hands are too. And the finished pictures are not only fun, but are also great memorabilia and gifts for grandmas, grandpas, aunts and uncles.

Which skills are supported? Motor skills, sensors
What do you need? Color suitable for children, a plate or a color palette, paper

Protect the floor or the table with newspaper. Fill paint on a pallet or a flat plate and help your child push the hand first into the paint and then onto the paper. Of course, that also works with your feet - this is how you get footprints of your child. You should definitely have a washcloth on hand to wash the paint off your feet. Otherwise, you can later understand well where your little one else went!

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. advertising
