Toys

Toddlers play with everything they can get their hands on. All you need are raw materials that they explore and experiment with. But a child in this age does not care if the things come out of a toy store, passed on by a friend, or made out of leftovers. You can not say in general which of the thousands of toys is right for your child, because that depends on what it already has and what it likes to do. But there are several types of toys that your child could enjoy and learn by at this age.

Playing with Natural Materials

If your child needs to understand how the world works, then it needs to know which materials come from nature and where they come from. If you live in a tenement house and have no garden, then your child will not open up by itself. Your job is then to tell him that plastic is artificial and not all water or milk comes from bottles, a carton or any other pack. You also have to give him materials to study and tolerate causing a bit of chaos. Because it teaches how to handle it.

Water Games : Games with still, bubbly, colored, cold, and warm water will teach your child that it flows, splashes, runs, drips, and is cold at the end, even though it was initially warm. When the child blows, bubbles or waves are created. Some things you put in, swim, others sink. It can be transported in vessels without holes, but it drips through a sieve or hands shaped into a shell. Your child will deal with it to the extent that you provide him with the water. A wading pool is so great, a bath too and a wash basin on a thick layer of newspapers is good too. Give your little test material such as small and large vessels to empty and fill, ice cubes, food coloring and a whisk.

Earth and Sound : The natural versions of it usually cause so much dirt that most kids get putty instead. But part of the unique value of clay is its muddy consistency. Your child must discover - and be able to enjoy without shuddering - how the sound presses great through the fingers, roll in the length and form into figures. Soon it will understand that too much water makes it glistening, too little moisture makes it crumbly, and if you let it stand, it dries.

Purchased plasticine is also a wonderful game material, but you should use it in addition, not in place of clay.

Games with sand : Washed or beach sand (no building sand, because it can contain cement) connects the games with water and clay or modeling clay, because wet sand behaves like plasticine, but with the interesting difference that drier Sand like water behaves differently. A solid material that is not solid and a wet material that is not liquid. Again, the measure is more important than the amount. A beach is heaven on earth and a sandbox (with a cover against cats) makes an ideal purchase for the garden. But a few pounds of sand in a bucket can make every winter's day exciting. If you do not have sand, you can also take a pack of rice if necessary. Give your child spoons and containers and encourage it to ""cook"" - the first step to interest in the real kitchen art.

Stones and Leaves : Playing with this teaches nothing about geology or botany, but your child is not old enough yet. But it can observe how shiny stones become dull by drying, green branches are flexible, but spring back. This shows that the world is full of fascinating shapes, consistencies and creatures.

Toys with Learning Effects

Wooden Blocks : Building Blocks will accompany your child to play for many years and it takes at least 60 pieces of them. Different colors are funny, but different sizes and shapes are more important. They must be proportioned so that the smallest are one quarter and the middle half the size of the normal blocks. When you knock them, they all tumble and when you put them together, you form a line that can be a train or a fence. If you put the smallest stones to the bottom, then a tower soon falls over, if you build the big stones down, then the structure is stable - an important experience!

Sorting and Stacking Toys : Different versions help your child discover that round balls do not go in square holes, that big things do not fit into small ones, and that in more complex shapes, they need to be on the right angle, to make it fit. You can buy these plug-in devices as well as make them yourself. First of all, your child will use a ""mailbox"" that you can make yourself: Cut out large circles and squares out of a shoebox. This will keep your child busy weeks before the first toy bought. Plastic cups that can be stacked and used in the bathroom or kitchen are a cheap and easy alternative to stacking toys.

Mold Charts and Jigsaw Puzzles : You can make the first ""mold board"" yourself by pruning putty molds and helping your child to put the mold back into the resulting hole.Maybe your little one is also interested in his first puzzle, where he can pull out a whole figure on a button and move back. Soon it will be able to make real puzzles, consisting of a few, large parts.

Hooks and Threading Games : A hook and a ring stick together, two hooks do, but not two. Why? Your child could try to equip their glider with plastic rings or to connect carriages to a train. Closed rings can be wonderfully thread on anything that is longer and thinner. Threading rings on a string is fun, as is the discovery of the ""correct"" sequence. Maybe your little curtain rings may be threaded onto a woolen thread or a lace.

Actively Playing and Shaping

Your child has learned how things work or how to get them done. It has discovered principles that seem natural to us and perfecting hand-holds that we do not even think about anymore.

Filling and Emptying : To fill cups with water or sand, bags of oranges, or your handbag with small toys, and then to empty everything again, these are early steps to a more mature handling of objects. Besides many manual skills, your child will learn how much water goes into a cup, how many wooden blocks fit in a box, and what happens when the containers are overcrowded. It takes a lot of interesting objects, various vessels and a lot of patience from the attentive parents.

Sorting and Classifying : Recognizing similarities and differences in things and categorizing them in the head are two of your child's most important thinking. Ordering with the hands supports the processes in the brain. Take a close look and you will see how your little one learns to differentiate toy cars from other toys. After that, it can sort oranges and potatoes apart. Later, it will experience a small dilemma: are the apples part of the balls because they are both round or rather the biscuits because they are both edible? Your child will sort and arrange everything that falls into his hands, but it is fun to have a large collection of natural objects that are not clearly distinguishable, such as rocks or shells.

Handling Objects : As your child learns all these skills and learns to work things, the toys are put to the test. For this reason, they should be well-made so that they really work together when your child understands how two things should go together.

What is a defiance reaction?

Where does a tantrum come from? Not every expression of anger or defiance equals a tantrum. Infants tear themselves, stomp their feet on the floor or get so stiff that you can not get them in the buggy - and yet have no tantrum or Koller. A real tantrum is even more special: it happens when your child emotionally blows a fuse.
