HOW TO PLAY WITH TOYS

HOW TO PLAY WITH TOYS
There are toys of every size and shape for toddlers.  Most are designed by the toy maker with a specific purpose in mind.  Some are educational; some are for developing coordination, and some teach socialization.

It is very important that your toddler uses these toys as they were intended.  If you want your toddler to develop to his full potential, to learn his letters, colors, animals, to develop physically and learn social skills, it is very important that they play with all their toys the way the toy makers intended.

I cannot stress the importance of this enough!  Most toys come with instructions and pictures demonstrating how a toy is to be used.  Improper use of toys can slow your toddler’s development and even leave him (her) confused and frustrated.  Parents should always monitor their toddler and be sure that all toys are used correctly.  If necessary you may have to demonstrate to your toddler how to use a toy correctly.  

Cole and Connor have a wonderful toddler table.  It is intended for quiet play.  The surface is for coloring books or playing with blocks.  In the center of this table there is a circular sack that is perfect for holding crayons or blocks until the boys wish to use them.  This is the perfect place for the boys to learn to color and learn to build with their blocks.


Cole and Connor may need some guidance.

  1. Bwahahahahahahaha. I'm not sure guidance will work with these two. They are having fun and that's the way it should be.

    Have a fabulous day, Joe. 😎

  7. Heeheehee! Life's a lot more fun if you can experiment. Add in a little destructo power and the possibilities for enjoyment are almost limitless!

  8. That is a prime example of "thinking outside the table." I imagine they are well on their way to becoming inventors, or social media influencers for life hacks.

  10. i think there are two kinds of toddlers ,one who precisely follow the rules of description and others who just follow their own instincts and toys inevitably become what kids want them to be :)

  12. I agree with Cole and Connor, use the toy to amuse yourself as well as learning. I think playing with a toy as the maker intended is fine, but once mastered, limiting. I say let the kids play with them any way they want, short of destruction and harm to others. Let them be creative and inventive in ways the maker never thought possible. They may turn out to be the inventors of the future.
