Young toddlers love to use their hands to explore the world. Provide your child with as many activities as possible to satisfy their curiosity and develop fine motor skills.

  • Practice making vertical lines with sidewalk chalk.
  • Paint during bath time with soap crayons, finger paints, or shaving cream.
  • Use nontoxic clay or dough to roll, stretch, and smash into different shapes. Plastic cookie cutters make fun shapes.

Remember a little creativity goes a long way!
