PLAY

What Can You Do With a...?

Toddlers love to explore their world and see what they can do! Any item can be interesting to a toddler, which is why they play with boxes and pots and pans as much as they play with toys. Nurture this interest by giving your little one some empty boxes, containers with lids, pots and pans, plastic bowls or any other item that is safe for them to play with and see what they do. These first attempts at pretend play really get that imagination going!
