At toddler stage, kids begin to expand their imaginations. Their ability to imitate someone or something is starting to get stronger. This is also the stage when the hunger for knowledge takes place, thus giving the correct information should be in the manner that is understandable. Also at this age, we hear the “what” and “why” questions over and over. So we keep answering their questions and we feel like we’re getting out of patience. The reason why little kids want answers again and again because they try to retain those answers in their brains. The we will be surprised how they remember those information. So amazing.
And as with pretend plays, toddlers have big imaginations. Tea parties, playing dress-ups, building blocks, and others are some of the games they play that they truly enjoy. The can make their own stories while playing. What’s amusing is that they will let us play with them, too. When my darling daughter and I are playing superhero game, I play as a villain. 🙂
What helps enhance toddlers imagination? Reading and play. Reading with your toddler everyday not only helps with their speech and vocabulary development. It also makes their brain work. With pretend play, it encourages children to broaden their horizons and comprehension.
My little one is interested with princesses now so she likes princess gowns for dress-up. We didn’t find a reasonably priced princess dress at the store the other day but we found this Lalaloopsy outfit with pink wig. The price wasn’t too much so I bought it for her because she really liked it. But I am not quite sure this will be her Halloween costume this year because there are lots of cute stuff in stores.
