The toddler stage is so much fun! You see their independence flourish during this time. This is the time when their brains are growing, learning boundaries, and so much more.
1.) These bear puzzles are so adorable. Toddlers can mix and match their clothes. During this time you can talk about what’s appropriate to wear during each season. Toddlers can label the types of clothing.
2.) Squigz are so much fun! They are colorful mini suction cups that stick to high chairs, glass sliding doors, car windows, plane windows, and each other. These are great to travel with, sort, and stack. Toddlers will use fine motor skills to stick them on and take them off of things.
3.) Toddlers are on the go and love to move around so story time may be a little challenging for them and you. Toddlers are fascinated with Poke a Dot books because they are interactive, allow your toddler to be involved in the reading process, and make a fun “pop” sound when you press it. Toddlers can count and identify animals in the book while popping away.
4.) This Little People house is perfect for little hands. Toddlers enjoy reenacting activities that happen in your home. Whether it’s cooking their favorite breakfast food in the kitchen, bubbles during bath time, or trying the potty; this house is a perfect for your toddler to act out their favorite home scenes.
5.) Toddlers enjoy singing; one of their favorites may be “Wheels on the Bus”. You can sing together and add so much language to re-telling the song together with this toy bus.
6.) String different patterns or make mom a necklace with these wooden beads from Melissa and Doug. Building fine motor skills at this age is so important to prepare your child for writing.
7.) Role-playing and pretend play is so important for toddlers and tends to begin during this stage. This fosters independence, language building, and creativity. Grab this adorable kitchen from KidKraft.
8.) A name puzzle is such a personalized gift. A child’s name is so special and makes them unique. Did you know when teaching the alphabet you should always begin with the letters in a child’s name first? This is because it is meaningful to the child.
