3 Fun Educational Activities For 2 Year Olds

It should not be surprising when suddenly bored with one or two of his favorite activities - it just means that he needs to move to activities that are now more appropriate for his age and will make him understand his actions, feelings and behavior more.

If your child is 2 years old, here are some fun educational activities you can try out with him:

Simon says

Simon Says is a simple but classic game enjoyed by children of all ages. In young children, playing such a game will help improve their ability to follow directions and improve their motor skills and receptive language.

Start by being a leader, saying Simon Sayes followed by a simple trend like "touch your belly" or "raise your hand". After a while, make directions more complex like "touch your right ear" or "jump 3 times."

You can make the game a bit more physical to keep your child active by asking him to catch something, hide it, or go somewhere (to the fridge, next to his bed, or under the window). Do not forget to give him his role or he is a leader!

Body tracking

All you need is a large piece of paper (big enough so your child can put it in a lying place) and two crayons and you'll have a fun activity for the afternoon. Essentially, your child should lie on the sheet while tracing his body. Once you have a silhouette of your baby, you can go ahead and fill the face - drawing eyes, ears, mouth, nose and so on.

Making him lie down without moving during your trail helps him develop his own sense of self-control. Drawing the parts of the body and showing them where the parts go increases its ability to identify parts of the body.

If your child is reluctant to lie down, do not force him - start tracking his hand or foot!

Game hide and seek

This activity will help improve your child's listening, problem solving, memory and social skills. Pick at least 3 of his favorite games, then hide them in different places in his room. Start at easy places like under his pillow or behind a chair.

Ask him to find games and give clues and say "warmer" or "cooler" as evidence. In the end, you can choose places to hide harder or go to a larger room.

It's time for your toddler to change his activities - try these fun educational activities for 2-year-olds.
