3 Fun Educational Activities For 2 Year Olds

It shouldn't come as a surprise when he suddenly gets tired of an activity or two that wont to be his favorites - it just means he must transition into activities that are now more appropriate for his age and can make him understand his actions, feelings and behavior more.

If your child recently turned 2, here are some fun educational activities that you simply can try with him:

Simon Says

Simon Says may be a simple yet classic game enjoyed by children of all ages. In young toddlers, playing a game like such will help enhance his ability to follow directions and improve his gross motor skills and receptive language.

Start by being the leader, saying Simon Says followed by an easy direction like "touch your tummy" or "raise your hand". After a short time , make the directions a touch more complex like "touch your right ear" or "jump 3 times".

You can make the sport a touch more physical to stay your child energized by asking him to catch something, to cover or to travel somewhere (to the fridge, by his bed, under the window). do not forget to offer him his turn or being the leader!

Body Tracing

All you would like may be a large piece of paper (big enough that your child can slot in it lying down) and a few of crayons and you will have a fun activity for a day . Basically, your child has got to lie on the paper while you trace his body. Once you've got your child's silhouette down, you'll plow ahead and fill within the face - drawing the eyes, ears, mouth, nose etc.

Making him lie without moving while you trace helps him develop his sense of self and self-control. Drawing the parts of the body and showing him where the parts go further enhances his ability to spot body parts.

If your child is hesitant to lie , don't force him - start by tracing his hand or foot!

Toy Hide and Seek

This is an activity which will help improve your kid's listening, problem-solving, memory and social skills. Choose a minimum of 3 of his favorite toys then hide it in various places inside his room. Start in easy places like under his pillow or behind a chair.

Ask him to seek out the toys, giving out clues and saying "warmer" or "colder" as a guide. Eventually, you'll choose harder hiding places or move to a much bigger room.

It's time for your young toddler to vary his activities - try these fun educational activities for two year olds.
