During the first six months of toddlerhood, your child is growing more active by the hour. How can you encourage his development?
By now, your toddler has become something of an explorer—grabbing, climbing, and sometimes tasting everything she can get her hands on.
At this age, sometimes it seems as if your 2- to 3-year-old is adding a new skill every day, whether it’s in the area of social, communication, motor, or cognitive development.
Whether or not your child is attending preschool, these activities will go a long way in helping to expand his blossoming cognitive, motor, communication, and social skills.
Parents are usually the child's first teachers, the main source for daily stimulation and active interaction. The benefits of "stimulation" extends beyond academic to key areas of cognitive, social and emotional development. It may be hard to think of new ways to stimulate your child, so let these age appropriate (6 months to 5 years old) guide on fun activities for children inspire you.
Your growing baby is up to many amazing things. Along with good nutrition, there are several simple activities that will help nurture his development as you go through the day together.
