Health Tip: Help Your Toddler Develop Needed Skills

By on November 18, 2015

Toddlers are in the midst of developing muscle strength, concentration, creativity and spatial awareness.

To help give these factors a boost, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:

  • encouraging building with blocks and pegboards,
  • stringing large beads,
  • coloring with crayons and chalk,
  • working large, simple jigsaw puzzles of four or five pieces,
  • pouring water to and from containers of different sizes,
  • building sand castles,
  • playing dress-up with dolls, changing outfits with snaps, laces and zippers.
