How Parents Can Encourage Constructive Play in Toddlers
While toddlers are great at turning boxes, paper towels, and everyday objects into "toys," there are some great commercial toys that are good picks for children in this stage of development and beyond. These include:
- Interlocking blocks like LEGO Duplo Building Sets or Lincoln Logs
- Art supplies such as crayons, paper, paints, scissors and glue
- Playdough by itself or with just a few sculpting tools
- Sand and water table
Basically, look for toys and materials that promote open-ended play. This will give your child the freedom to construct things from his own imagination versus things that a game maker or artist has thought up.
