Top Five Games to Play with Your Toddler

 

Having a toddler doesn’t just mean dirty diapers and loud nights. It also means having to brainstorm over what games one can play with their children. As a parent, we always want what’s best for our children. We know that games aren’t just for fun and comic effect; they also provide necessary physical and mental development that will, later on, make the child a healthier and more successful individual.

So you may wonder: which games are the most effective when it comes to giving my child premium mental and physical growth? Well, wonder no more! (You’ll find 18 fun games at CheckPregnancy.)

Below we have compiled a list of the top five best physical and intellectual games that will nourish your child’s dormant capabilities. So let’s dive into it!

 

 

 

 

Top Five Games to Play with Your Toddler

 

1. Teddy’s Alive!

Children almost always have plush toys or action figures. In order to tap into their creative skills, try pretending that their toys are alive and walking. Children can have the wildest of imaginations, and if they see their parent tearing the teddy bear like a real person, they will too!

Include the plush into daily activities, give them equal recognition, and invite them to parties and games. This will create a sense of companionship and socialization in the child. This will also ensure that your child has a healthy upbringing, and knows the ways of politeness and humbleness, like offering the seat to someone else, asking the others to have food, etc.

 

2. Push Me Up:

While not perfect at it, toddlers are known to try to walk or stand up by pushing themselves up. Try playing a little pushing game with them, and they will surely learn how to push themselves up in no time! Make them hold onto a box or a chair, and help them as they hold onto the edges and support themselves. This will not only help them walk and stand up but will also increase the parent-child bond.

 

3. Let’s Clap!

Children find interest in the simplest things. They can be intrigued by something as trivial as clapping your hands. Which is why it is important to ensure that they master these skills before they grow old. Clap along with your child and make sure that they follow suit. Hold their hands and clap them for the child so they get the hang of it.

 

4. Tea Party:

When your toddler is about a year old, having tea parties can be very interesting indeed! Children can love tea parties, and these events may actually tap into their innate creativity and teach them tons about the world. Filling a tiny plastic bottle with water and handing out “tea” to the child and their toy can be wild indeed!

 

5. Catch Me!

We’ve all played this game in our childhood. Have the kid chase you around and get occasionally caught to boost their confidence. Similarly, chase the toddler around and try to make them win, which will encourage them and keep them happy.

 

Playing games with your toddler offers so much more than just play time.  It offers a fun way to bond with your child through play.  Playing games also offers social skills, emotional regulation, and fine motor skills.
