Both you and your toddler will have fun playing together. Play releases your toddler’s energy in a positive manner and may help your stress level decrease when you play open ended games and don’t have to say “no”.
One idea is to do some simple Yoga exercises. If you know any yoga poses, you will find that toddlers can catch on quickly.
Toddlers enjoy imitating anything. Do the simple animal poses, such as monkey, elephant or down dog. Then make up your own silly poses. These games will also offer you teaching opportunities about the animals and their habits. And if you have more time have a simple animal theme craft handy. Try the game suggested below.
The elephant is a highly intelligent mammal. The African elephant is the largest land animal. During these activities children can learn some basic facts about this amazing mammal. Copy and paste this link to find this game. http://www.firstschool.ws/activities/shapes/animals/elephantshapes.htm
