Toss a large, lightweight ball, like a beach ball, up a gentle grassy slope. When it rolls back towards you, show your toddler how to catch it. Then it’s her turn.
Place a beanbag on your child's back while she's in a crawling position, then have her crawl around the room until the beanbag falls off. Her goal is to keep it on her back as long as possible.
You can help your toddler build on her movement skills—and her social skills—by joining a playgroup, taking her to the park or having a little friend over to play. At this age toddlers are unlikely to play “with” each other, but they enjoy the company and can learn from one another.
